Operation Sovereign – Blackfriars Crown Court

The defendants were investigated as part of an operation that focussed on alleged wide spread charity fraud perpetuated at London Underground and Overground stations. The defendants were trustees of an international charity that had run for almost 20 years. It is alleged that they diverted hundreds of thousands of pounds of funds collected on behalf of the charity into their own accounts over 6 years and that they have been under declaring their annual submissions to the charity commission during this time. The case involved careful analysis of multiple bank accounts and the use of forensic accountants and thorough inquiries into the nature of the investigation where there were apparent failures of protocol.
