A shamed former West Midlands Police officer has been jailed for his part in a £1 million-plus sex and drugs racket.
Osman Iqbal played a “leading role” in an organised crime group which controlled £300-an-hour call girls working in London’s West End.
The 36-year-old and three cousins took charge of two “high class” brothels where cocaine was supplied to customers, a judge said.
Iqbal, whose address cannot be revealed, was also involved in laundering dirty money from the ventures, which made a total far in excess of £1 million.
He was jailed for seven years and two months – one of six men and women sent to prison at Warwick Crown Court.
Passing sentence, Judge Sylvia de Bertodano told Iqbal: “It is very sad to see a man like you in this position.
“You are not only a man of previous good character, you were a police officer who played a significant role in the community and your record as an officer was an extremely good one.
“You have lost a great deal as a result of this offending.”
Iqbal and his cousins, Birmingham brothers Talib, Atif and Asri Hussain, all admitted conspiring to act or assist in the management of a brothel.
The quartet also pleaded guilty to possessing cocaine with intent to supply it at the two brothels they ran.
