The Sunday Times is breaking a story of a massive £8bn fraud against British taxpayers by so called “British Asians” that was first detected 24 years ago! But of course, because it’s the Sunday Times, they have to pick a geographic and racial identify for the gangs when the entire text clearly shows these gangs were all Muslim and working to send money to Islamic causes.
A network of British Asians based in London, Buckinghamshire, Birmingham, northwest England and Scotland mounted VAT and benefit frauds against the exchequer over two decades and made further gains from mortgage and credit card fraud targeting banks and individuals. The group netted an estimated £8bn in public money alone.
How many of the following causes sound Sikh or Hindu to you?
The gang, which has links to the 7/7 London bombings in which 52 people died, is alleged to have sent 1% of its gains, or £80m, to al-Qaeda in Pakistan and Afghanistan, where it funded madrasahs, training camps and other terrorist activities, according to the leaked files.
Just like with the overwhelmingly Muslim rape gangs which are nearly always referred to by the lying media as “Asian gangs”, it seems there is a need to obfuscate these crimes too.
There isn’t a whole lot of specific details about the crimes:
The crimes were complex and varied. But they led to a single outcome: billions of pounds being stolen from the public purse and private sources.
Is it possible that the very lucrative business of Jihad rape gangs (Child sexual exploitation CSE) is included in these prosecutions? This form of crime is not mentioned at all (even to say it wasn’t being carried out).
This detail is astonishing:
A customs officer told this newspaper that he was repeatedly prevented from sharing intelligence with MI5 because HMRC wanted to maintain the confidentiality of the terror suspects’ tax records.
Even more unusual, multiple convictions and investigations are still covered by gag orders and surrounded in secrecy. Why?
Reporting restrictions imposed at the start of the first trial prevent the identification of any of the gang because several kingpins fled the UK before they could be arrested. They are thought to be in the Middle East. The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) continues to insist that nothing can be reported until the masterminds have been returned to the UK to face trial.Nazir Afzal, a leading prosecutor who brought the Rochdale sex-grooming gang to justice in a series of linked trials, said the situation was unprecedented.The scandal here is that individuals have been to prison and come out of prison, yet the public still don’t know about it,” he said.
HMRC intelligence officers also identified the gang’s links to Shehzad Tanweer, a terrorist involved in the 7/7 London bombings in 2005, at least two years before the attack. However, senior HMRC officials declined to use the intelligence to mount prosecutions and take the gang out of operation until after the bombings.
I guess this accountant fancied a different career and didn’t want to become a lion tamer. Also note he was working for a council. This has been a huge problem with keeping Jihad rape gangs covered up:
One gang member who can be identified is Afra Syab Ilyas, an accountant with Burnley borough council. The files state that he left Lancashire for Afghanistan in the late 1990s to fight for the Taliban, the Islamic fundamentalist movement that gave shelter to bin Laden as he plotted his 2001 attack on the World Trade Center in downtown Manhattan.
You are not allowed to know who was prosecuted.
Many suspects identified by the investigation in the 1990s were prosecuted. Associates of the ringleaders were charged with carousel fraud and money laundering. The CPS had to review secret MI5 intelligence about the defendants to ensure there was nothing that would prejudice a fair trial.The result was “jaw-dropping”, according to a source: “MI5 had information that the ultimate destination for some of the money was Osama bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad.”The al-Qaeda leader spent his last five years evading western intelligence in a safe house less than a mile from a Pakistani military academy and 150 miles from the Afghan border. Bin Laden was eventually found and killed by a team of US Navy Seals in May 2011.
HMRC were not passing information on to the security services.
The tensions inside HMRC became unsustainable when al-Qaeda finally delivered a big blow in the UK. Four young suicide bombers inspired by bin Laden’s anti-western rhetoric launched co-ordinated attacks on London’s public transport network in July 2005, killing 52 people. It was Britain’s deadliest terrorist attack since the 1988 bombing of Pan Am flight 103, which crashed onto Lockerbie.Embarrassingly for HMRC chiefs, one of the bombers was linked to the network at the centre of its inquiries, which it had decided not to pass on to MI5.
I think this paragraph says more than the Sunday Times really means:
The gang infiltrated multiple government agencies and corrupted local politicians in its war on British taxpayers, the files allege. Much of the detail comes from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) and Special Branch, which investigated the network over a 20-year period.
Yes. This is a war on British taxpayers and the British people.
There is much more but the article is behind the Sunday Times pay wall (£).
