West Midlands PC Osman Iqbal faces brothel charge

A West Midlands police officer has been charged with conspiring to manage a brothel.

PC Osman Iqbal also faces five charges of misconduct in a public office, and a single charge of conspiracy to launder money and possession of Class A drugs with intent to supply.

Nine other people have also been charged in connection with the allegations.

All are due to appear before Nuneaton magistrates on 30 April.

PC Iqbal, 35 who is based at a Birmingham police station, is suspended from duty.

Four of the accused come from London, where police said the alleged brothel was based.

The others, including PC Iqbal, come from Birmingham.

The force said the charges came after a lengthy investigation by its anti-corruption unit and the Metropolitan Police.
