Shamsudeen admitted 23 various charges under the Theft Act, Social Security Administration Act and the Forgery and Counterfeiting Act when he appeared at Snaresbrook Crown Court. He was jailed for a total of nine months, suspended for 18 months. He received a suspended sentence because of his efforts to pay back the sum in full. Unfortunately this type of fraud where the owner of a property falsely states that he or she is paying rent to occupy what is in fact, his or her own property, is becoming far too prevalent.
Most of us accept that some of the money we pay in taxes contributes towards helping people who have fallen on hard times and the benefit system is there to provide that support. In Newham we are committed to preventing benefit fraud and we will prosecute those we believe are abusing the system where appropriate. People can contact us safe in the knowledge that we can keep their identity strictly confidential. Sometimes people attempt to obtain benefits to which they are not entitled and we take that very seriously.
Newham Council has an online form people can use to report a suspected Housing Benefit or Council Tax Benefit fraud. It will take them step-by-step through a series of questions, making sure the council has all the information it needs so that it can investigate. Together with East Ham MP Stephen Timms and Poplar and Canning Town MP Jim Fitzpatrick he joined a procession of Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorer Scouts and their leaders through the park to the riverside. The VIP guests carried out an inspection of all the youngsters who had attended, including a group from Italy who had joined them for the occasion. view publisher site : North adelaide conveyancing Advantix Flea
There are 12 Scout groups in Newham meeting weekly to offer activities including arts, crafts and games, along with a focus on the outdoors for older members who may learn canoeing, hiking or abseiling. Membership has increased by 27 per cent recently. I am pleased that more and more boys and girls are looking to get involved with Scouting. It can be great fun but it can also teach valuable life and social skills. It promotes good health and keeps youngsters away from anti-social behaviour. I am delighted to be a part of this special moment for Scouting.
