Men sentenced at High Court in Edinburgh in connection with firearm offences

Two men have been sentenced after being convicted of possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life in Edinburgh.

Muhammad Huzaifa, 24, and Zeshaan Khan, 25, had previously pled guilty and today, Tuesday, 4 July, 2023, Huzaifa was sentenced to six years and Khan was sentenced to one year nine months at the High Court in Edinburgh.

Detective Inspector Gary Reid from the Organised Crime and Counter Terrorism Unit (OCCTU) said: “This investigation led to the recovery of a firearm and ammunition which potentially prevented the death or serious injury to another individual.

“I welcome the sentence today and hope this will be a reminder to those involved in firearms offences that Police Scotland will do everything in our means to remove these from our streets and protect the public.

“This sentencing underlines our commitment to the Serious Organised Crime Taskforce and the country’s Serious Organised Crime Strategy.

“Anyone who has information or concerns about firearms in their community is urged to contact Police Scotland via 101. Alternatively, if you would prefer to remain anonymous, call the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
