UK: MAMMOTH FRAUD TRIAL ENDS IN JAIL FOR FRAUDSTERS IN £13 MILLION IMMIGRATION SCAM

Huffington Post on 23rd November reported that 5 men who ran a multimillion-pound tax and immigration scam have been sentenced to more than 31 years in jail after they claimed £13 million in tax repayments and facilitated around 900 bogus visa applications in an elaborate scheme that spanned 6 years.  The fraud was discovered in 2011 and involved the use of 79 bogus companies to create fake documents that were then used by Bangladeshi nationals in fraudulent visa applications.
