According to the Independent article two Crown Prosecution Service workers have admitted to making more than £1 million worth of bogus claims for taxi fares. The pair is expected to be given custodial sentences when they go back to court for sentencing on 4th July (case number T20137424). It is believed that the five year scam, in which the two workers abused their positions at Birmingham Crown Court by producing invoices for a fictitious taxi company, enabled Tahir Mahmood to pay off his £120,000 mortgage and Lisa Burrows to fund many trips to Dubai and buy designer clothing and jewellery.
The report goes on to say that both pleaded guilty to the offence and the pair were remanded in custody pending the preparation of pre-sentence reports. The CPS dismissed both workers on the first day they appeared in court and are making steps to recover the funds. The police were carrying out an investigation when they were acting on a compliant from the CPS.
