SEVEN men accused of historical sex offences have appeared in court.

The men, who were charged as part of Thames Valley Police’s Operation Rolo investigation, did not enter pleas at Oxford Crown Court today.

Judge Ian Pringle QC set April 18 as a provisional date for the trial, which is expected to last between two and three months.

Haji Khan, 37, of The Willows, Headington, Oxford, Moinul Islam, 40, of Wykeham Crescent, Oxford, and Cee J Jackson, 54, of Bella Court, Oxford, appeared along with four other men, who cannot be named for legal reasons.

Khan was released on bail but the other six men were remanded in custody.

All are next due at the court on December 8.
