Siddiqi family statement pays tribute to Aamir

Speaking outside Swansea Crown Court on behalf of the family, Aamir's Sister, Umbareen Siqqidi, paid tribute to her brother.

Today's guilty verdict is the right one and as a family we are both delighted and relieved. On the 11th of April 2010, a house which was previously filled with love and laughter was brutally destroyed by the callous, vicious attack on our parents and our brother.

Within seconds our lives changed for ever.

The world has moved on in almost three years since the murder but for us the attack is as fresh as if it happened yesterday.
