Jonathan Sandiford Prosecutes International Criminal

Jonathan Sandiford  as leading counsel to John Harrison on a prosecution described as one of the largest cases ever brought by the West Yorkshire CPS.

Jonathan Sandiford was leading counsel to John Harrison on a prosecution described as one of the largest cases ever brought by the West Yorkshire CPS. Both Counsel were instructed over a six-year period to prosecute a number of large fraud trials involving the conspiracies to defraud and launder money. The main target of the investigation was organised crime using both a restaurant and hand car washes to launder the proceeds of criminal activity.  The main target of the prosecution received prison sentences in excess of 10 years in length. 

The Yorkshire Post reported by Crime Correspondent, Rob Preece.

"Yorkshire ringleader of scam netted over £10m"

"Corrupt professional, including a disgraced solicitor and a former bank manager, took part in a multi-million-poind restaurant and car wash scam that was smashed by one of the largest fraud inquiries ever conducted by Yorkshire detectives.

A former racing driver and an accountant were among others drawn into the long-running conspiracy which ripped of taxpayers, suppliers and utilities firms.

The professionals worked for ringleader John Elam, a property developer who is believed to have made at least £10m from the scam and enjoyed a lavish lifestyle in luxury properties in Leeds, Harrogate and London."
