Couple jailed for British boy’s kidnap
A married couple have been sentenced by a Spanish court to 10 years in jail each for kidnapping a five-year-old British boy.
A panel of three judges at the court in Tarragona found Muhammad Zahid Saleem and Gianina Monica Neruja guilty of snatching Sahil Saeed, of Oldham, at gunpoint in Pakistan in March 2010.
The court heard that Saleem and Neruja made threatening calls to Sahil’s family and went to Paris to collect the £110,000 ransom from an uncle.
