(LONDON) Westminster Court Report: A former Oxbridge student has had 10 years added onto the 11-year prison sentence he is still serving, after failing to pay back £11 million of his ill-gotten gains from a fake ‘green’ investment scheme #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Aug.20: Michael Richards, 59, was originally convicted and sentenced in 2017 with four others – all of whom went to Oxbridge – of cheating the public revenue. Two years later, the CPS Proceeds of Crime Division successfully applied to the court for Richards to pay back £9,999,999 of his ill-gotten gains. This has risen to £11.1 million with interest.

#AceDailyNews reports that an Oxbridge graduate fraudster gets another 10 years in prison for not paying back £11m stolen funds after paying back just over £30,000, the CPS took him to Westminster Magistrates’ Court on 17 August for non-payment of the full amount and requested an additional prison sentence be activated instead….

18 August 2021

The fraudsters told investors their money would be spent on research and development into carbon credits, attracting more than £65 million in investment in the ‘green’ scheme. However, only £16 million of this was spent on planting trees.

Instead the group stole £20 million of the investors’ money and laundered it via bank accounts and secret trusts, spending it on luxury properties in London, Australia, and Dubai as well as hidden offshore investments. They also failed to pay around £6.5million in tax. Richards spent his share on a £2.7m house and £32,000 on jewellery from Boodles.

Adrian Foster, Head of the CPS Proceeds of Crime Division, said: Michael Richards failed to pay back the £11 million he owed the public so the CPS had to take him back to court and now he’s had 10 years added onto his current sentence: We worked with HMRC to make sure he did not benefit from the proceeds of his crime, but he has only paid back a paltry amount: Even when fraudsters are convicted and sentenced the CPS will continue to pursue them for the money they owe, or they risk remaining in prison for many more years.”……..Richards’ fellow fraudster Evdoros Demetriou, 82, had nine years added onto his six-year prison sentence in July, after failing to pay back £4.6 million. In total, all five offenders were told to repay £20.6 million…………Robert Gold was sentenced to 11 years’ imprisonment and disqualified from being a company director………..Rodney Whiston-Dew was sentenced to 10 years’ imprisonment and disqualified from being a company director.
Jonathan Anwyl was sentenced to five-and-a-half years’ imprisonment………….In 2019-20 the CPS recovered over £100 million, stopping hundreds of criminals benefitting from their ill-gotten gains.

Additional Notes

  • Michael Richards (04/01/1962) was convicted in November 2017 of a conspiracy to cheat the public revenue, and also cheating the revenue in relation to his personal tax liability. He was sentenced to a total of 11 years’ imprisonment and disqualified from being a company director.

(WARWICKSHIRE) Crown Court Report: A rapist has been jailed for 20 years and his accomplices also put behind bars after a woman was raped at knifepoint, kidnapped and intimidated in a terrifying ordeal #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.10: The horror started when Dadwal came home drunk and high on cocaine to a property in Bedworth in November 2019 following an argument with his partner, who was aged just 19 at the time:

WARWICK: Knifepoint rapist told teenager he would “dump her body” after kidnapping her: Muhebullah (Mobei) Dadwal was sentenced yesterday (7 June) for raping his ex-partner at knifepoint before abducting and threatening to kill her, telling the terrified teenager he would “dump her body and police would never find her”.

8th June 2021

Dadwal
Muhebullah Dadwal has been jailed for 20 years

The 33-year-old assaulted her before taking a knife out, pressing it against her throat and raping her, telling her “it wasn’t rape as she was his girlfriend”. He also put her mobile onto airplane mode so that no-one could call her.

That night they went to the Coventry Hill Hotel and the next day he kicked the woman in the face and got out his knife out and raped her again.Muhebullah Dadwal has been jailed for 20 years

The teenager was too scared to report the incident at the time, especially as Dadwal, who was married with children, had threatened to kill her family members if she said anything to police.

She managed to separate from her abusive partner, however a few months later in February 2020 she was kidnapped by Dadwal while walking on Gordon Street in Coventry.

She instantly recognised his dark coloured Ford as it pulled up on the pavement and tried to run away, but Dadwal exited via the passenger side and grabbed her.

The teenager tried to resist at which point a man in the back seat of the car – later identified as Constantin Stan – grabbed her legs and Dadwal forced her inside before the driver made off.

Dadwal immediately began shouting and intimidating the woman, asking her who she had been seeing. He snatched her phone as she tried to call 999 and demanded to know the pin code, before smashing the device. 

They stopped at different locations all the while the 19-year-old was begging Dadwal to let her go. He then punched her and pulled out a knife, threatening to kill her.

They pulled up in a pub car park and the driver parked the car near to an alleyway. Dadwal told the woman “this was where he could kill her and dump her body” and “police would never find her”. She was then dropped back on the street.

Despite the shocking and distressing circumstances, she courageously contacted police and following this a wanted appeal was put out for Dadwal and on 3 March an anonymous call came into police identifying his location and he was arrested.

A full and comprehensive CCTV trawl around the kidnap site carried out by our officers, who recovered a camera looking at the exact point of where the victim was taken and which showed clear footage of the kidnap. Despite being shown this footage, Dadwal denied all charges.

The 33-year-old, of no fixed address, was found guilty of two knifepoint rapes, assault, kidnap and criminal damage and was sentenced to 15 years in prison with five years extended licence. He was also put on the sex offender registration for life and has an indefinite restraining order.A trial found Dadwal guilty of two knifepoint rapes, assault, kidnap and criminal damage

Constantin Stan, who was a back passenger and assisted Dadwel in getting the victim into the car, was arrested after trying to leave the country. The 31-year-old, of Holbrook Lane, Coventry, was found guilty of kidnapping and sentenced to two years and three months in jail and handed an indefinite restraining order.

Mobei Dadwel’s brother Wahidullah (Wahid) Dadwel pleaded guilty to witness intimidation. He sent messages to the victim whilst his brother was on remand offering her money to drop the charges against him.  Wahid Dadwel, age 30, of Deerhurst Road, Coventry, was sentenced to 12 months in prison and given an indefinite restraining order.

Detective Constable Jonathan Barker, from our Public Protection Unit, said: “This woman has shown remarkable courage during these proceedings and I hope her bravery will encourage other victims of sexual offences to come forward and have the confidence in us to seek justice and support them throughout their ordeal: Hopefully the 20 year sentence of Muhebullah Dadwal will be of some comfort to the woman and go some way to providing her with closure. People who have been raped often understandably struggle to come to terms with what has happened and it can have a devastating impact on their lives: “ We take reports of sexual offences very seriously, making it a priority to treat people with compassion and respect and work tirelessly to put perpetrators before the courts.”

At the end of the sentence at Warwick Crown Court, His Honour Judge Anthony Potter commended West Midlands Police on their work on the investigation.

#AceNewsReport – May.31: Cameron Deriggs, 18, of Bromley Hill, Lewisham, was charged on Friday night with conspiracy to murder: He appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court and was remanded in custody:

Sasha Johnson Shooting: Man, 18, appears in court over activist’s shooting: Ms Johnson, a 27-year-old mother of two, remains in a critical condition after the attack at a house party in Peckham, south London, in the early hours of Sunday.

Mr Deriggs did not give an indication of plea.

Prosecutor Carol Udenze told the court Ms Johnson was shot in the head while another person was shot in the foot. 

“The Crown’s case is that the defendant, in agreement with others, conspired to murder somebody at that address,” she said. 

Ms Udenze confirmed the police did not believe Ms Johnson was the intended target.

Several members of Mr Deriggs’s family, including his parents, were present in the public gallery.

His next court appearance will be at the Old Bailey on 25 June.

Ms Johnson had been among 30 people at a silent disco in the back garden of a home in Consort Road when four men in dark clothing burst in through a side gate and shots were fired, investigators said.

Det Ch Insp Richard Leonard, of the Metropolitan Police, said she was shot in the “ensuing melee” before the suspects fled.

Four other men arrested over the incident have been bailed until late June.

Ms Johnson is a prominent member of the Black Lives Matter movement and also a founding member of the Taking the Initiative party, which launched last year.

She graduated with a first in social care from Oxford Brookes University and was well known for her activism.

On Monday, a vigil was held for her in Ruskin Park, close to King’s College Hospital where Ms Johnson is being treated.

(LONDON) Wood Green Crown Court Report: A man who sexually abused a number of children over a 35-year-period has been sentenced #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – May.26: This comes after he pleaded guilty to a total of 77 sexual offences when he appeared at Wood Green Crown Court on Friday, 12 March:

LONDON: Man sentenced to life in prison for sexually abusing a number of children over a 35-year period: Paul Farrell, 55 (01.10.65) of Castle Road, Camden, was sentenced to life in prison with a minimum term of 18 years at Wood Green Crown Court on Monday, 24 May.

[JAILED]: Paul Farrell

[JAILED]: Paul Farrell

These offences included counts of indecency with a child, indecent assault, sexual assault of a child, causing a child to engage in sexual activity, sexual activity with a child, attempted rape and possessing indecent images.

The offences relate to eight victims, committed between 1985 and 2020.

Farrell was also charged with three counts of possessing an indecent photograph / pseudo-photo of a child, one count of making indecent photograph / pseudo-photograph of a child and one count of possessing extreme pornographic images, which were heard at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court on 3 July 2020. He pleaded guilty to these charges at the same court on the same date.

Some 25 counts have been left to lie on file and one count has been vacated.

The court heard that in November 2019, an allegation of non-recent child abuse committed against two boys at an address in north London in the mid-1980s was reported to police.

Officers from the Central North safeguarding team visited Farrell at his work address and arrested him on suspicion of historic child abuse.

A number of devices were seized from his home, and Farrell was released on conditional bail pending further enquiries.

The devices were analysed, and indecent images of children were found. These were graded A – depicting the most serious child abuse – to C.

Upon returning from bail in May 2020, Farrell was charged with three counts of possession of indecent images. More indecent images and extreme pornography would later be found, and further charges brought.

Meanwhile, text messages were retrieved from his mobile phone which led to enquiries being made about other young victims who may have been abused.

Six further victims were identified, and they disclosed that they were sexually abused by Farrell at different periods in the 1980s, 1990s and 2010s with the most recent offences in June 2020 while he was on bail.

In each case, Farrell was a lodger, or babysat, at the homes of his victim’s families, and befriended the parents before abusing the children. The victims were aged between five and 15 when they were abused, at different addresses in London.

Two victims told police that Farrell had taken them to his place of work – a hospital in central London where he was employed as a porter – for a visit and abused them there. None of the victims reported being abused as patients at the hospital.

Detective Sergeant Jules Manock, from the Central North safeguarding team who led the investigation, said: “The survivors who have come forward have shown incredible bravery and I hope now that Farrell’s guilty pleas and lengthy sentence can offer them some closure after years of suffering in silence: The accounts they gave to police of the abuse they suffered at the hand of Paul Farrell, and how their childhoods were stolen from them, were nothing short of harrowing, and today’s result means a predatory paedophile is now in custody where he can’t harm any more children.”

Detective Superintendent Dave Courcha, from the Central North area, said: “Farrell was extremely calculating and devious in his targeting of children – he lodged at the homes of accommodating families and won their trust, only to abuse their children under their noses over a prolonged period: Most of the victims lived with the trauma of what they were subjected to for decades, with two victims waiting more than 30 years before feeling ready to come forward to police: I would like to acknowledge the courage of each of the survivors in giving statements and reliving the horrors they went through to ensure that Farrell could be brought to justice: I would also like to praise the efforts of the investigation team who worked extremely hard to identify further victims and obtain statements. This is a good example of the Met’s commitment to safeguard the vulnerable and support survivors of sexual abuse: Farrell admitting to what he did has spared these survivors the prospect of having to describe the abuse in a court, and he will now serve life in prison for his crimes: Given the predatory nature of his offending over an extremely long period of time, there is a very real possibility that Farrell has abused other children. We urge any further victims to contact police right away – a specially trained team of detectives are ready to listen to your story and support you.”

Anyone who has either been a victim of Farrell’s offending, or who has concerns about Farrell’s offending should in the first instance call a helpline set up by the NSPCC for this case – 0800 101 996, or email help@nspcc.org.uk. Any allegations of crime will be passed to police and reviewed.

(LIVERPOOL, U.K.) Crown Court Report: A fourth man has been sentenced to 18yrs-in-prison for kidnap, rape and assault of a man in Bootle in 2015 #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – May.26: Officers can confirm that a fourth person has been sentenced in connection with the kidnap, rape and assault of a man in Bootle in 2015:

Kamil Lesiak sentenced to 18 years in prison for kidnap, rape and assault of man in Bootle in March, 2015 a 25-year-old Kamil Lesiak of no fixed address was found guilty of False imprisonment, assault causing actual bodily harm, rape and causing a man to engage in penetrative sexual activity without consent.

Kamil Lesiak.jpg

Lesiak was sentenced to 18 years in prison at Liverpool Crown Court today, Tuesday 25 May, after an earlier trial of three people in 2016: Four offenders kidnapped a 27-year-old man in November 2015, keeping him against his will for around 10 hours. Two of the offenders, Lesiak and Daniel Misiolek, subjected him to a series of physical and sexual assaults in that time: Lesiak was later identified as being involved and was arrested in the Anfield area in September 2020 after failing to appear at court:

The following people were sentenced on Friday, 30 September 2016 following a trial: Daniel Misiolek of Simons Croft, Netherton was jailed for life after admitting kidnap, rape, false imprisonment, assault occasioning actual bodily harm, robbery, and six counts of causing a male to engage in sexual activity without consent: Awna Baszak of Simons Croft, Netherton was jailed for 12 years after being convicted of kidnap and two counts of causing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent following a trial: Dagmara Szary, of Belton Road, Huyton was jailed for 15 months in a young offenders institution after being convicted of kidnap following a trial.

Following the sentencing, Detective Sergeant Jamie Dean said: “It is pleasing to see this highly disturbing case brought to a full conclusion, and Lesiak facing the consequences of his appalling violence and abuse in 2015. Lesiak and Daniel Misiolek subjected their victim to this horrific ordeal, some of which was filmed by Awna Baszak on a mobile phone: The courage the victim has shown during the first trial and in the years since have ensured that four people have now been brought to justice, and hopefully provided some comfort when coming to terms with what happened: Rape is a very personal crime, which many victims, understandably, struggle to come to terms with and it can have a devastating effect for the rest of their lives. There is no doubt that this continues to have a profound impact on this victim. Hopefully his immense bravery will encourage other victims of sexual offences to come forward and have the confidence in us to do the right thing and support them throughout their ordeal: I want to make it clear that if you report a sexual offence, we will investigate it thoroughly and provide you with the utmost support throughout. We are here to treat you with compassion and respect, and will work tirelessly to put perpetrators before the courts. Specialist police officers from our Unity team work side-by-side with a number of partners including Independent Sexual Violence Advisors (ISVAs), who work with the victim from the moment the police make the referral through to the court case and beyond.”

Anyone with information or wants to report sexual offence allegation is asked to call 101 where you will be spoken to by specially trained officers or you can pass information to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111: Support for victims is also available through the registered charity the Rape and Sexual Abuse Support Centre Cheshire and Merseyside, who can be contacted on 01925 221 546 or 0330 363 0063, or Rape and Sexual Assault Merseyside (RASA) on 0151 558 1801.

(LONDON) Court Report: A man who photographed his unconscious victim after he had raped her in a park in Hayes has been jailed #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – May.24: He will spend a further four years on licence, and will remain on the Sex Offender Register for life:

LONDON: Thomas Mangar, 36 (06.01.85) of Bourne Avenue, Hillingdon was sentenced to 12 years’ imprisonment on Friday, 21 May at Isleworth Crown Court, after being found guilty in March of rape and sexual assault.

[Jailed: Thomas Mangar]

[Jailed: Thomas Mangar]

Detective Sergeant Julian Crabb, from the Met’s Safeguarding team, said: “This man is a highly dangerous individual and this sentence reflects this heinous crime: The victim has shown tremendous resilience throughout this ordeal, the police investigation and subsequent trial. My thanks goes to the witness and all the officers who relentlessly worked on this case to ensure justice and bring some closure to the victim: Rape, sexual assault and violence will not be tolerated in any form, and I hope this result brings some reassurance to communities.”

The court heard how on 11 May, 2020, the victim, a woman in her late 20s, had met up with two friends in the evening: She remembers her intention of going home but was later unable to recall how she came to be in Hitherbroom Park in Hayes: At around 14:45hrs the following day (Tuesday, 12 May), she awoke in a daze, on the grass of the park, to find a man raping her. She began screaming at the unknown man, which alerted a nearby member of the public: During the trial, the court heard testimony from a male witness who heard the woman’s screams and saw her push and hit her attacker: The witness had a brief conversation with the woman before he called police, and upon arrival officers spoke with the woman and the witness: The witness explained to officers that prior to their arrival he had chased and caught up with the attacker who had told him he was trying to help the woman, believing she was having a heart attack. Both men parted company on Avondale Drive in Hillingdon: Four days later, the witness spotted Mangar again within the vicinity of the park and called police who arrested him:

Her Honour Judge Duncan, said during the sentencing: “The witness had to give evidence at the trial over two days. During that trial the defendant made several outrageous and false allegations against the witness, who reacted calmly and with impressive composure in extremely difficult circumstances: “ It is my view that it is because of the witness’s actions on the 12 and 16 May and the evidence that flowed from those actions, that Mr Mangar was convicted of rape and is now serving a long prison sentence: “ The witness acted with courage, intelligence, sensitivity and a strong sense of civic duty. I recommend that he be awarded a sum of £750 as a gesture to recognise that where many would have walked away, he did the right thing.”

The court heard how photographic evidence was found on Mangar’s phone, it included selfies taken by him with his thumbs up and of the woman lying down, exposed and in an unconscious state: During the trial, the jury also heard that DNA evidence from a condom was recovered from the scene – it carried the profile of Mangar. There was also the profile of the woman found on a discarded and torn condom wrapper nearby:

In an impact statement presented to the court, the woman explained that prior to the attack she was a very confident woman and now this has been taken away from her. She goes on to say she doesn’t feel like she has a life at the moment. She sleeps a lot and her social life has become non-existent. She feels vulnerable and doesn’t feel safe at the moment, getting flashbacks whenever she walks past a park or a grassy area.

+ If you have been a victim of sexual assault or rape or you have information about an offender, contact police on 101 or 999 in an emergency – there are specially trained officers who will listen and investigate where needed.

During the pandemic, we want to encourage victims of sexual offences, which may have come about after a breach of Covid rules, to continue to report to us. Police will not take any action on Covid-related issues where a sexual assault has occurred and is reported to us. We want to provide support and ensure we bring the offender to justice.
