The three other defendants in the case cashed cheques worth a total of £47,800, taking the group’s haul to £65,783 before the frauds were detected and subsequent cheques were blocked.The prosecution revealed that all the offences were committed against HSBC bank who provided banking services to Aldi. All four have admitted entering into a money laundering arrangement and acquiring criminal property.They were each handed six-month suspended sentences and ordered to carry out between 80 and 120 hours unpaid work.Read more about money laundering. George Sourou money landering Aldi money mules December 17, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
