Lutfur Rahman Ally Jailed For Housing Fraud : Tower Hamlets Corrupt Muslim Mafia

`A Tower Hamlets councillor and a close ally of corrupt former Mayor Lutfur Rahman has been jailed for fraud.

Tower Hamlets councillor Shahed Ali was sentenced to five months in prison after admitting the offence. Ali, who has been disqualified from office, was a supporter of the Muslim extremist Mr Rahman and served in his Cabinet before the former Mayor was kicked out of office in disgrace after being found guilty of electoral fraud last year.

The jailed Muslim was first elected under the banner of  traitor George Galloway’s Respect Party. Then re-elected as representing Lutfur Rahman’s now banned Tower Hamlets  First. Both parties have ties to extremist East London based group Islamic Forum Europe. THF and Lutfur were said by many to be little more than IFE fronts to control the area and further Islamization. IFE and its front groups received millions in council grants during Rahmans time as mayor. IFE are the UK branch of extremist group Jamaat-e-Islami whose overall goal is a Muslim world living under sharia.

The 45-year-old Muslim is thought to have cost the council over £70,000 in legal fees.He spent months denying the charges .Refusing to stand down from his position and continuing to claim full expenses. But pleaded guilty on the first day of his trial last month.If he had pleaded guilty when first accused on December 9 last year the cost would reportedly have been less than £4,000, the council said.

The former councillor has been given a 22-week sentence under the 2006 Fraud Act for not disclosing information about his changed circumstances when applying for a council house. Ali failed to notify the council of the change between the date he completed a housing application form and the date he accepted a council tenancy, while under a duty to do so. He failed to tell the authority that he owned two properties.

Councillor Ali was also registered to vote at two addresses with votes cast in his name for both. His case was cited by the judge in Mr Rahman’s election fraud trial as an example of the dishonesty that surrounded the disgraced former mayor.Although the judge pointed out that evidence of both ballots plainly showed something was wrong, the police decided there was insufficient evidence to charge him with electoral fraud, enraging anti-corruption advocates who claimed this was another example of the Met Police turning a blind eye to obvious wrong-doing.

Cllr Peter Golds, Isle of Dogs councillor and Conservative group leader said:

“Shahed Ali is the second Rahman supporting Tower Hamlets councillor jailed for housing fraud. The property that he illegally secured while owning a former council flat where he allegedly lived, a former council flat which he rented out, a restaurant with flats at Frinton on Sea could and should have been made available to one of the 20,000 families on the council waiting list.

“This man could have resigned from the council when his fraud became known, instead he continued to trouser over £10,000 in council allowances, while doing nothing for the people that he was elected to serve.

“He is gone now but the stench of the Tower Hamlets First corruption still hangs over the town hall.”

 

Communist Corbyn And His Support For ISIS Fundraiser Who Stole OAPs Life Savings

Yet another controversy surrounding the extremist Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn by support for a Muslim fraudster who swindled pensioners savings and donated funds to ISIS.  Corbyn wrote a letter on behalf of Muslim fraudster Mohamed Dahir to the Crown Court asking the judge to spare him a prison sentence

Criminal Mohamed Dahir was part of a gang of Muslims who preyed on old age pensioners, the most vulnerable in society. The victims who had an average age of 83 were scammed of almost a million pounds by the repulsive gang in total . Anybody who can target frail OAPs repeatedly and steal every penny they have saved without a second thought mustn’t have any decency or morales what so ever. They are the absolute filth of humanity and should be put down like you would do to an incurable rabid dog. 

It just about sums up the kind of person Jeremy Corbyn is. His support of IRA and Muslim terrorists is already well-known. Support of this piece of vermin shows without doubt that he is a disgrace. He hates the country and its people who much that he will give his support to the Muslim immigrants who commit the lowest of the low crimes over our nations elderly who have lived through the war and done their bit for our nation over the years and now left with nothing.

Does he have that little respect for the poor victims and their families!!  

God help us should the Labour party ever make it in to power with its communist leader Jeremy Corbyn at the helm. One term with him as Prime Minister drag the nation so far down that there would be no recovery leaving the UK on par with some third world countries. He would happily see every foundation that this country has made torn down at the first chance he got if it helped implement the extremist communism ideology that he craves.

He should be locked up for treason not serving as an MP representing the people. The only people he represents are his communist string pullers such as Unite the union and the SWP aswell as Muslims who they see as vital in their quest for power as they can play upon ‘victim of imperialism’ how Britain are bad ticket.

Corbyn takes Muslim appeasement to a totally new level. He makes Neville Chamberlains appeasement to Hitler look like hard balling and even eclipses traitor George Galloways cozying up to extremist Muslim regimes.

Lawyer for Muslim fraudster accused of funding ISIS tries to use letter of support from Jeremy Corbyn to keep his client out of jail over Christmas

  • Fraudster was part of a gang of three who targeted elderly people for cash
  • Scam was uncovered by police investigating the funding of terrorism 
  • Although investigated they were never charged with terror offences 
  • Lawyers for one of the gang handed letter from Corbyn to judge in the case
  • But today a judge turned down pleas for the conman to be given bail

A lawyer today tried to use a letter from Jeremy Corbyn to keep a Muslim fraudster accused of funding Islamic State terrorism out of jail over Christmas.

The Labour leader wrote a letter on behalf of Mohamed Dahir, asking for him to be granted bail when he was first charged.

The plea from Mr Corbyn emerged as Dahir, 23, and three other fraudsters were found guilty of conning pensioners out of their life savings of almost £1million by posing as police officers. Five others pleaded guilty.

Detectives believed that the gang ran a ‘bank of terror’ sending some of the money to Syria to support Islamic State, a court hearing was told in May.

Mr Corbyn originally sent the letter on behalf of Dahir, who is one of his Islington constituents, in May – four months before he became leader of the Labour Party.

He argued that Dahir had ‘roots in the area’ and was unlikely to abscond. The letter played a part in securing bail for him during the course of the trial.

But when Dahir’s barrister Patrick Harte attempted to use the letter again yesterday (Thu) to keep him on bail until sentencing, judge Anuja Dhir QC refused and remanded him in custody.

She said that now he had been found guilty there were significant grounds to believe he would fail to appear at his sentencing hearing next year.

The nine fraudsters are facing jail after conning the elderly out of £904,000 by pretending to be policemen investigating bank account scams.

The conmen told their victims their money was not safe in their accounts – and needed to be moved.

If any of them became suspicious they advised them to call their bank’s fraud department or ring 999. But the conmen kept the line open so the pensioners were actually speaking to one of the fraudsters.

Fraudsters visit Devon address and leave with wad of money

They preyed on the ‘frailty, vulnerability and isolation’ of pensioners with an average age of 83 and tricked them transferring their life savings into another account or into handing over cash.

The pensioners from Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Bedfordshire, London and Kent thought they were talking to genuine policemen and willingly handed over their money for safekeeping.

Some were told they were helping an important undercover investigation and were ordered not to tell the bank clerk or local police officers in case they were part of the scam.

The gang, based in London, also played on family ties, allegedly claiming a victim’s grandchild had been caught up in the fraud and arrested and that cooperating with police was the only way they could help.

Pensioner William Goodall was even persuaded to cancel an important medical appointment so that he could help ‘police’ with their undercover operation.

Pensioner Elizabeth Curtis, 71, from Helston in Cornwall, lost £130,000 and Michael Garratt, 70, from Weymouth in Dorset, was conned out of £113,000. Meanwhile an unnamed 94-year-old man from west London had £130,000 stolen.

Last night Scotland Yard’s counter-terrorism division described the scam as ‘one of the biggest courier fraud investigations carried out by British police’.

Commander Richard Walton said: ‘We uncovered this fraud after a separate terrorist investigation found suspicious payments into a bank account of an individual who is now believed to have travelled to Syria.

‘This callous group of criminals stole vast sums of money from extremely vulnerable and elderly people from across the country.

‘Their despicable actions have had a terrible and devastating impact on their victims with some losing their life savings.

‘The targeting of vulnerable men and women in their 80s and 90s is quite simply beyond belief.’

Commander Walton said the fraud was on a ‘huge national scale’ and involved 5,695 calls to 3,774 different phone numbers across the UK.

At least three of the conmen had attended London universities and some had experience in call centres which made them sound plausible on the telephone.

They often played background noises simulating bank call centres to make their calls appear genuine.

At an earlier hearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court, prosecutor Edward Aydin described it as financial terrorism ‘on an industrial scale’

He said the ‘sophisticated criminal network’ was ‘a threat to the national security of this country’.

Mr Aydin said: ‘Terrorism overall takes a new form in 2015 – it’s not on the battlefield. These people before you, they are the bank of terror. They are not small fry, they are deadly and dangerous.’

Dahir, Shakaria Aden, 21, Yasser Abukar, 23, and Mohammed Abokar, 28, were found guilty of conspiracy to commit fraud between May last year and May 2015. Ibrahim Farah, 23, was cleared of the same charge.

Mohammed Abokar was also convicted of converting criminal property.

Fahim Islam, 20, Achmed Abdulaziz Ahmed, 23, and Makzhumi Abukar, 23, previously pleaded guilty to conspiracy to defraud.

Anrul Islam, 24, and Mohammed Youssfi, 37, pleaded guilty to money laundering.

All nine will be sentenced next year.

Last night a Labour spokesman said Mr Corbyn had been approached by the constituent prior to the trial, and wrote a letter on his behalf as is standard for a constituency MP.

This was before the full facts of the case had emerged, and was on the basis that Mr Corbyn was informed the constituent needed to be at home with his children and would not abscond and could not travel abroad‎.

‎ The ‎spokesman said: ‘Jeremy Corbyn condemns the actions of his constituent as appalling acts against vulnerable people and wholly unacceptable.’

Muslim Gang From Rochdale Jailed For Large Credit Card Scam

Scams and frauds seem to be one of the few things that Muslims in the UK excel at. Unfortunately it is the rest of the country who suffer from their ill gotten gains when the losses are added to the  price everybody else has to pay

Gang jailed for £500,000 credit card scam

Published 14/01/2015 09:42:12

An organised crime group responsible for fraudulently ordering more than half-a-million pound worth of goods in a credit card scam have been jailed.

On 13 January 2015, eight members of this criminal network were sentenced at Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court for their roles in the scam, which potentially involved more than 2,000 businesses across the country.

The investigation by Greater Manchester Police⿿s Fraud Investigation Team identified the gang fraudulently ordered more than £600,000 worth of goods from 57 companies across the UK.

However, officers believe this was just the tip of the iceberg as analysis of phone records suggests they contacted more than 2,000 potential victims and couriers and that the actual loss could be in excess of 2 million pounds.

Between June 2011 and November 2012, this gang contacted multiple businesses across the UK, ordering a variety of goods using stolen and compromised credit cards obtained from illegal online forums.

They then placed orders for hundreds of thousands of pounds on goods such as cabling, tiles, food, alcohol, fridges, cars, high-value metal and other wholesale goods.

The following offenders pleaded guilty to conspiracy to defraud:

Ammar Khalid (born 10/10/1987), of Elder Street, Rochdale, was sentenced to 4 years imprisonment

Irfan Khan (born 25/03/1988), of King Street South, Rochdale, was sentenced to 3 years 4 months imprisonment

Ahmed Sohail Pasha (born 15/12/1987), of Milkstone Road, Rochdale, was sentenced to 3 years 4 months imprisonment

Shazad Arshad (born 10/10/1994) of Anne Linne Close, Rochdale, was sentenced to 18 months in a Young Offenders Institute

Hamza Mughal (born 01/08/1988), of Surma Close, Rochdale, was sentenced to 2 years imprisonment

Faraz Malik (born 04/10/1986) of Bosworth Street, Rochdale, was sentenced to 2 years imprisonment

The following offenders pleaded guilty to handling stolen goods:

Aqeel Malik (born 26/11/1986) of Bertha Road, Rochdale, was sentenced to 12 months imprisonment suspended for 12 months, 200 hours unpaid work and a 9 month supervision order.

Mohammed Sohail Khan (born 12/08/1988) of Queens Road, Oldham, was convicted of handling stolen goods and sentenced to 6 months imprisonment suspended for 12 months, 200 hours unpaid work and a 9 month supervision order.

Two other defendents, Usman Shafa and Christopher Goodhew are to be sentenced on 2 February 2015 for handling stolen goods.

The gang adopted aliases and contacted businesses, using the stolen credit card details to pay for the goods over the phone. Initially there were no concerns as the payments were successfully processed using remote payment machines. Subsequently the goods were delivered to a variety of locations across Rochdale.

Private couriers were met by the gang, the goods were unloaded and shortly afterwards collected by pre-arranged buyers.

Several weeks later, the companies discovered they had been defrauded and the true account holders, whose details had been stolen, reported the unusual transactions to their banks. As a result, the funds were taken from the company’s accounts leaving them at a loss.

The Fraud Investigation Unit’s inquiries began in November 2011 when police responded to a report of suspicious activity on Grandidge Street, Rochdale, where officers found Faraz Malik and his cousin Aqeel Malik unloading a quantity of stolen steel.

As the investigation progressed, officers also seized quantities of dog food, fridges and alcohol which had all been bought using compromised details.

Officers also recovered phone records and text messages between the gang which showed an exchange of card details, aliases and potential targets. At the home of Shazad Arshad, officers found an embossing handle used to print card numbers onto counterfeit cards, counterfeit cards were found at the homes of Ahmed Sohail Pasha, Ammar Khalid and Faraz Malik and software to write card details onto the magnetic strips of credit cards was found on a laptop in Irfan Khan’s bedroom.

Detective Sergeant Phil Larratt, of GMP’s Fraud Investigation Team, said: “This gang were involved in a concerted, full-time operation to defraud companies out of thousands of pounds worth of goods.

“It is clear from the sheer scale of the evidence we recovered that these men thought they had an unearthed a goldmine and had no intention of slowing down or stopping. I have no doubt they⿿d still be trying to con businesses out of thousands of pounds today had we not caught them.

“This was this gang’s full-time occupation. The group operated as a business with a clear hierarchy and structure. Ammar Khalid, Irfan Khan and Ahmed Sohail Pasha directed operations from the comfort of their own homes, accessing the dark web and placing orders using the compromised card details.

“In times of austerity, these businesses lost tens of thousands of pounds thanks to the underhand tactics of this gang and potentially could have faced financial ruin.

“However, thanks to the work and dedication of the officers from the Fraud Investigation Unit we were able to unravel their web of deception and they have now been exposed so that no other businesses can be targeted by this gang. We carried out a painstaking investigation involving meticulous examination of financial and phone records and I am delighted all that work has paid off.

“We know there may be other similar scams being operated here in Greater Manchester and across the country so I would urge anyone who thinks they may have fallen victim to contact Action Fraud (www.actionfraud.police.uk) Greater Manchester Police are determined to disrupt and prosecute the perpetrators of this type of serious and organised criminality. Anyone found guilty of committing these types of fraud, as this gang have found out to their cost, can expect a stint in prison.”

Disgraced former councillor jailed for nine years for masterminding family’s immigration racket

First published Friday 14 November 2014 

A DISGRACED former Bradford councillor, who masterminded a cynical and sophisticated immigration scam to make money, has been jailed for nine years.

Four relatives, including three sons, who Khadam Hussain recruited to the conspiracy were locked up with him yesterday for at least seven years.

Judge David Hatton QC said Hussain and his relatives had flouted immigration laws, duped innocent immigrants and put the reputations of respectable solicitors and estate agents at risk.

Hussain, 62, a former Conservative councillor – who was axed from the Council for failing to attend meetings, while claiming thousands of pounds in allowances – held his head in his hands as he was sentenced at Bradford Crown Court.
Hussain, of Box Tree Close, Girlington; his wife Zahida Parveen Hussain, 53, also of Box Tree Close; sons Adam Ashraf, 36, of Northcroft Rise, Girlington, Adnan Hussain, 31, of Hilton Road, Little Horton, and Gibran Hussain, 26, of Box Tree Close, and their cousin Numan Shafi, 24, of Hilton Road, were convicted yesterday of conspiracy to defraud after a trial lasting several weeks.

Zahida Hussain was found guilty by a majority of 10-2, and Adnan Hussain by a majority of 11-1.
Ashraf, Gibran Hussain and Shafi were jailed for seven years. Adnan Hussain, who also pleaded guilty to falsely applying for a carer’s allowance, was sentenced to seven years and three months.

Judge Hatton told the defendants they had all been convicted of a conspiracy to defraud entry clearance officers by the creation and submission of false documents in support of applications for entry into the UK.

The judge said: “This conspiracy involved a thoroughly dishonest, cynical and wholesale assault on the integrity of the immigration procedures, rules and regulations.”

More than 100 false applications had been identified. Judge Hatton said the conspiracy had been for financial gain, mostly on behalf of strangers and committed over a number of years. It was a sophisticated and planned operation.

Applications were supported by false stamps from firms of solicitors, false letters of employment, false property reports on available accommodation and false wage slips.

The judge said that, though some of the applicants were aware of the falsity, some were entirely innocent and were simply duped and deprived of legitimate applications which would likely have succeeded.

Judge Hatton said a number of responsible and respectable firms of solicitors and estate agents had their identities used without their knowledge, putting their good reputations at risk.

Applicants were charged between £200 and £3,000 for the defendants’ service.

Prosecutor Craig Hassall said an investigation revealed a large-scale immigration fraud, led by Khadam Hussain and centred on The Palace, a function venue on City Road, Bradford.

The court heard that, although functions were sometimes held at The Palace, the venue was essentially a front for the family’s principal business of offering immigration advice and documentation in return for payment.

The court was told that Khadam Hussain had never been officially registered as an immigration adviser and did not openly advertise himself as one, but it was common knowledge in the local community that he was the person to go to for help with immigration matters.

The defendants had provided more than 100 applicants with forged documents which suggested their sponsors were able to house and support them financially.

Mr Hassall said: “Few of the defendants’ customers would have been able legitimately to provide this type of information and their application would therefore have failed.

“By this deception, the defendants have assisted numerous people to enter the United Kingdom on fraudulently obtained visas.”

He said the estimate of the financial gain from the false applications was in the region of £175,000.

The crime came to light in February 2011 after Nasreen Karim, a solicitor and partner at Platinum Partnership Solicitors in Bradford, reported fraudulent use of her signature and company stamp.

Judge Hatton told Khadam Hussain he was central to the conspiracy. “You were its originator and its organiser. You recruited others, including your own sons.”

Khadam Hussain’s barrister, Simon Keeley, said the applicants were intending to come to the UK legitimately. “This isn’t a case aggravated by the use of false identities allowing unknown individuals to enter this country.”

Mr Keeley said there was an other side to his client’s character and he had set up an orphanage in Pakistan.

Judge Hatton adjourned sentencing on Zahida Hussain for a pre-sentence report and granted her conditional bail. But he told her: “You must prepare yourself for a prison sentence.”

Speaking after the hearing, Craig Swanston, from Home Office Criminal Investigations, said: “The sentences handed out today come at the end of a complex investigation into the criminal activities of a Bradford based organised crime group led by Khadam Hussain.

“His gang, which included members of his family, used fraudulent practices to cheat our immigration system and facilitate the illegal entry of foreign nationals into the UK.

“Today’s sentences reflect the gravity of these offences, and this gang are now paying the price for their criminality.

“We have specialist Criminal Investigations teams, and our officers are determined to bring anyone involved in this sort of criminality to justice.”

Immigration and Security Minister James Brokenshire added: “The Government is making Britain an ever more hostile place for immigration criminals as part of our determination to build a system that is fair to British citizens and cracks down on those who flout the rules.

“This gang thought they could profit from cheating our immigration laws, but thanks to the dedication of our investigative teams they have been caught and sent to prison.

“These sentences send a clear message to the gangs involved in this sort of organised criminality – the Home Office crime teams have the skills and experience to track you down.”

‘Cash For Crash’ Top 20 Hotspots Almost All Muslim Areas

Despite  the majority of Muslims in the UK being regarded as a little bit backwards due to generations of inbreeding and work shy. Preferring to sponge off the state in the welfare benefits is their usual style. Scamming just like sex crimes and savagery is something they excel at. Don’t let their normal retardedness kid you to much. When it comes to obtaining money by deception and scamming people their sex obsessed pea brains seem to step up a few gears

Information released to try and combat cash for crash fraud listed the hotspots by postcodes in the UK. It will come as no surprises that almost all are in areas that have been subjected to Islamization. Well known Muslim dominated cities Birmingham, Bradford and Bolton postcodes make up the top 10.

  • The Frame – the car in front slams on its brakes for no obvious reason giving the victim no time to prevent a collision.
  • The Blame – they insist that it’s the victim’s fault and give them their name and address and the details of their insurance company, sometimes already written down on a piece of paper.
  • The Claim – A few weeks later (though sometimes longer) the victim will receive a letter from their insurance company notifying them of a grossly exaggerated claim including the costs of a recovery vehicle, car hire and whiplash injuries to passengers, none of which actually happened.

 

 

Mosque Committee Man Jailed For £140k Benefits Fraud Over 14 Years

Lets be honest this kind of fraud is rife amongst Britains Muslim communities. Alas Miah who fiddled £140,000 over the 14 years he fraudulently claimed is one of many thousand Muslims who will doing exactly the same defrauding the system which the taxpayer picks up the tab for.

Jail for mosque committee man in £140k benefits fraud

Bedford Today

A Bedford man been jailed for 16 months for stealing almost £140,000 in benefits over 14 years.

Alas Miah, of Brereton Road and formerly of The Avenue, Bedford, was sentenced at Luton Crown Court after admitting seven offences relating to benefit fraud spanning 14 years from 1998 to 2012. In total, he had claimed £137,572 in housing benefit, council tax benefit and Jobseeker’s Allowance that he was not entitled to.

The court heard on Thursday, July 31 that when Miah first made a claim for housing and council tax benefit from Bedford Borough Council in 1998 he declared that he had no savings or investments.

However, following a tip-off from a member of the public, investigators from Bedford Borough Council and the Department for Work and Pensions discovered that at the time he made the claim he owned a commercial property at 33 Brook Street in Raunds, and also held a valuable insurance policy.

Miah gave the property to his son in February 2000 but this did not prevent the value of the property from being taken into account for the purpose of his benefit claim. A further hearing in October this year will consider whether the property should be confiscated as a proceed of crime.

In his defence, his barrister argued that Miah was a man of otherwise good character who had not enjoyed a lavish lifestyle as a result of his crime. He was also of good standing in the community and was chairman of the funeral committee at the local mosque.

In sentencing him to prison, the Judge made it clear that “the amount of money and time make this so serious that only immediate imprisonment is needed”.

Miah must serve at least half the sentence in prison and the rest on licence in the community. If he reoffends he will serve the full sentence. He will also have to repay all the money he stole from taxpayers.

Councillor Shan Hunt, executive member for revenue and benefits, said: “This was a deliberate fraud committed over a long period of time which cost taxpayers a huge sum. Mr Miah was respected in his local community but through his own greed must now serve time in prison as a criminal and may well find his assets confiscated by the court.

“Once again, a vigilant member of the public has helped our investigators to stop a serious fraud and this case shows that no matter how long it takes, eventually the fraudsters will be caught and can expect to find themselves in prison.”

Jailed Tax Dodger Mohammed Suleman Khan Built Mansion Yet Claimed To Earn £40k pa

Mohammed Suleman Khan lived like a Lord with an upmarket house in Birmingham and a newly built mansion in Pakistan the size of Buckingham Palace has been jailed for four years for tax evasion.  Despite claiming to earn no for than £40,000 per year the lifestyle he lead told a different story. Experts predicted that he would needed an income of over £1 Million to sustain his flamboyant lifestyle.

His Pakistani palace would of cost a minimum of £2.3 million to construct.  The prosecution said he owed £445,000  in unpaid taxes to the taxpayers pot. 

Khan will be just one of thousands of Muslims in the UK avoiding paying taxes whilst living the life of luxury. You only have to look around the streets in any Muslim area to notice the amount of Muslims driving round in flash cars to notice something isn’t quite legit.

Tax dodger who built ‘palace’ jailed

April 11, 2014, 10:27 am

A Birmingham man who built a house the size of Buckingham Palace by dodging taxes has been jailed.

Mohammed Suleman Khan, 41, was arrested from his gated Edgbaston residency three years ago on suspicion of money laundering.

The lengthy police probe – sparked by the concerns of local people – found evidence of tax and national insurance evasion.

Detectives from Force CID worked with HM Revenue and Customs officials to probe the finances of the Birmingham born debt collector and businessman who claimed to have an annual income of no more than £40,000.

But despite finding 13 paper wraps banks use to secure £1,000 bundles all bearing the same date stamp, and after scrutinising phone and computer records, there were limited financial records leading investigators to believe that Khan only used cash and had few assets.

Determined to uncover the truth, detectives worked with the social policy research charity, the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, to compare cost of living fees with his lifestyle and established that to maintain his standard of living would require earnings in excess of £1 million over the nine year period between 2001 and 2012.

The probe also uncovered plans for a house the size of Buckingham Palace in Ghorghusti in the Attok attock region of Pakistan.

The blueprints showed the mansion had its own cinema, library, servant’s quarters and even a guard house for a security team.

Experts estimated that construction would have cost £2.3 million although there was no official record of ownership.

Talking about the investigation, Detective Inspector Andy Bannister, from Force CID, said: “This was an intelligence led policing operation sparked by community concerns. The nature of Khan’s offending meant that this was a particularly complex investigation in which detectives had to piece together information from a range of sources − including satellite imaging data on the property − to secure charges.

“Khan’s bank accounts bore no resemblance to his day-to-day-living. He maintained he was a debt collector and business man but failed to provide investigators or the court with any evidence to back this up.

“He had his day in court and was ultimately found to have cheated the public revenue by not paying tax or national insurance contributions.”

At a special hearing at Liverpool Crown Court on 4 April, Khan was sentenced to four years behind bars after the judge, his honour Judge Andrew Menary QC, ruled that Khan had defrauded the public purse through tax and national insurance evasion over nine years. His criminal act meant he owed public coffers just over £445,000 in tax.

Chief Superintendent Alex Murray, responsible for policing in east Birmingham, said: “Khan was perceived by some people in the community to be untouchable. That perception was shattered by his arrest, charge and later, his conviction.

“The joint action taken by police and HM Revenue and Customs proves that where communities trust local officers and confide in them, we are able to piece that information together with other data and where appropriate launch an investigation.

“This may take time but we will always seek justice to be served on those who don’t operate within the law like the vast majority of hard working people do.

“For people who want to exploit the system for their own gain, the message from West Midlands Police is that we will stop you, whether that is through criminal law, through Revenue and Customs, the Department for Work and Pensions or others.

“Communities are fed up of people thinking they are above the law and are increasingly standing up to be counted.”

Detectives are now working to claw back the cash and any other assets through the Proceeds of Crime Act which will see the money ploughed back into community crime fighting initiatives in the West Midlands.

People can share their concerns about people living and committing crime in their community to police on 101 or anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Charity Commission To Investigate Muslim Charity Over Property Purchases

The charities commission are investigating Khodam Al Mahdi Organisation. They are the extremists who run the Al Muhassin Mosque,home to controversial Islamic satellite television station Fadak TV. Hate preacher Sheikh Yasser al-Habib is regularly featured on Fadak TV stirring up sectarian tensions between shia and sunni Muslims. It has been alleged the charity used donations to buy property.

What the outcome of the investigation will be, who knows. Personally i think the charity commission are a waste of time. In the past their investigations have come to nothing. Even when investigating charities with clear links to terrorists abroad. Muslim charity Interpal for example, who are listed on American counter terrorism lists as fundraisers for Hamas.

Having spent quite a bit of time on the Charity Commission website looking for information. I have found Muslim charities certainly need looking into. I cannot believe the number of Muslim charities there are in the UK given that we are a non Muslim country.
They almost like a Muslim job creation scheme and money making machine at the same time. All eligible for grants and funding being a registered charity. In fact many are funded only by local authority and government grants.Often the trustee of one charity will also be the trustee of one or two others, all intertwined to maximize their funding. Some of the charities who have received significant funding such as the East London Mosque famous for its hate preacher guests has listed over 100 employees !!! All getting a wage funded partly by the British taxpayer.

Charity watchdog launches investigation into dissolved charity behind controversial Fulmer mosque

Published: 7 Apr 2014 10:25
AN INVESTIGATION has been launched into a dissolved charity behind a controversial mosque amid concerns it used fundraising money to buy a property.
Charities watchdog, the Charity Commission, has opened a statutory inquiry into dissolved charity the Khodam Al Mahdi Organisation and charitable funds supposedly raised in its name.
The group is behind the Al Muhassin Mosque, in Windmill Lane, Fulmer, home to controversial Shia Muslim Sheikh Yasser al-Habib. The mosque plays host to hundreds of his followers every week and is home to Islamic satellite television station Fadak TV which airs his broadcasts, said to stir up conflict between the Shia and Sunni Muslims.
The Kuwaiti preacher has reportedly delivered sermons on the TV station celebrating the death of one of Sunni Islam’s most revered figures. He was also investigated by Ofcom two years ago after he reportedly suggested one of the Propher Muhammad’s successors was gay.
The commission said in August last year it became aware a charitable company had been dissolved at Companies House, since 2012, but said the charity had not informed the regulator it no longer existed or updated its details on the register, as it was required to do.
Commission investigators then found cash had supposedly been raised in the name of the charity, after it had dissolved, and was used to but a property.
A statement from the regulator read: “Following correspondence with the individuals holding the property, the regulator became increasingly concerned about the basis on which the funds were raised and the protection of the charitable property.
“In addition, the commission has concerns regarding the management and financial reporting by the former charity trustees.”
It opened the statutory inquiry on February 17. The investigation is examining the basis on which the funds were raised and is assessing whether former trustees of the dissolved charity and people holding the property have complied with charity law.
Officials will then publish a report after the inquiry detailing what issues were looked at, what actions were undertaken as part of the inquiry and the outcomes.

A man arrested on suspicion of fraud earlier today is believed to be the principal of Kings Science Academy in Lidget Green.

Police announced the arrest of a 41 year old man this morning in connection with an investigation into matters at a flagship Bradford free school.

Although they have yet to confirm his name, the man is understood to be the free school’s principal Sajid Hussain Raza.

West Yorkshire Police were called in to investigate the academy after auditors from the Department for Education found major failings in the school’s finances.

Three people were interviewed under caution last November about allegations of suspected fraud by false representation at the school.

Today, Detective Superintendent Lisa Griffin, head of crime for the Bradford District, said: “As part of West Yorkshire Police’s ongoing investigation into matters at Kings Science Academy, Bradford, a 41-year-old man has today been arrested at premises in Bradford and is currently being questioned in relation to suspected fraud offences.”

At about 3pm today, a police spokesman added: “Further to this morning’s update, a 41-year-old man has been released on bail pending further enquiries.”

Reporting Of Muslim Lawyers’ Trial Banned ‘For Cultural Reasons’ By Appeasing Judge

Muslims are the first to complain when they feel they are being unfairly treated compared with others. Yet they still expect special treatment because of their religion. The justice system is especially fond of giving Muslims special treatment compared with the rest of the country.

Guilty: Asha Khan has been convicted of attempting to pervert the course of justiceGuilty: Asha Khan has been convicted of attempting to pervert the course of justice

 

A judge allowed two Muslim solicitors accused of trying to cheat the legal system to hide behind a cloak of secrecy for  ‘cultural reasons’, the Daily Mail can disclose.

He banned reporting of the case of Asha Khan, 30, and her brother Kashif, 34, to prevent them allegedly being shamed in the eyes of their community.

In the latest farce involving secret justice, the pair were told they could enjoy the court’s protection because members of their family would pass judgment if the case was reported.

It is a privilege rarely bestowed on defendants in the justice system, which has operated on the principle of transparency for centuries. However, following a challenge by the Daily Mail, the restriction was lifted – enabling the case to be reported.

Judge Peter Hughes reversed his original ban after deciding that the principle of open justice was more important than saving the embarrassment of a defendant.

After almost a year of court appearances and legal argument, Miss Khan has been convicted of attempting to pervert the course of justice, while her brother was acquitted of the charge.

They were on trial accused of helping their father, Mohammed, dodge a speeding fine by pretending he was not driving at the time of the offence.

In a saga with echoes of the Chris Huhne scandal, he allowed a man who worked for the family to take the blame instead.

At the beginning of the hearings, Miss Khan’s barrister, Glenn Gatland, argued  she would not give evidence properly in the presence of the Press because she was afraid of family repercussions.

He said she did not want to criticise her father in public – though she was quite happy to have her mother sit in the public gallery.

‘Miss Khan is quite upset that if matters are reported she doesn’t feel she would be able to give her evidence as freely as she would have done otherwise,’ said Mr Gatland. ‘Culturally, it’s very difficult for them to say things in public. The evidence would be impacted on by the cultural background of Miss Khan.’

Judge Hughes accepted the argument and banned reporting of the case but then changed his mind after a two-day legal battle with the Mail. ‘We are dealing with members of the legal profession charged with perverting the course of justice,’ he said.

‘People of all faiths or no faiths should be treated in precisely the same way. We’re not dealing with discrimination against. We’re dealing with discrimination for.’

York Crown Court heard that in August 2010 Mohammed Khan was caught by a speed camera in Newcastle while driving daughter Asha’s silver BMW.

When Miss Khan received the speeding notice, she claimed that the driver was David Moat, who worked for the family.

Some months later, the day before Moat was due before magistrates, her brother faxed the court a letter on Moat’s behalf, saying he wanted to plead guilty by post.

Moat was fined £100 with £30 costs and six penalty points for the speeding offence. Prosecutor Jacob Dyer said: ‘There is no dispute in this case that the man actually driving the car was Kashif Khan’s father.

‘It was hoped by supplying the false details that the trail would be lost and the fixed penalty unit would eventually take no further action. But the suspicions of the unit were aroused.’

Kashif Khan successfully argued he did not realise what was going on and had only been trying to help Moat by filling in the form using information provided by him.

‘It was horrible,’ he said. ‘All my life I have worked so hard and told the truth.’

The Khans work for KK Solicitors in Newcastle and live in the city. Asha Khan, a trainee at the firm, will be sentenced in the New Year, with her father and Moat, who both admitted their part in the plot.
