Mumin Hashim and Gulam Ahmed secure acquittal in a multi handed large scale immigration and tax fraud
Mumin Hashim and Gulam Ahmed secured the only acquittal in a multi-handed large scale immigration and tax fraud in one of the longest trials of 2018 that lasted 35-weeks. The trial involved fraudulent applications of Tier 1 general and entrepreneur visas.
Seventy-nine bogus companies providing fake payslips were used to facilitate 900 fraudulent visa applications by Bangladeshi nationals, some of whom were OISC registered, featuring the recycling of cash. In addition, hundreds of bogus tax repayment claims were submitted.
