Cameron Brown QC successfully appeared in the Supreme Court on behalf of the Crown in their appeal in the leading confiscation case.
Employees who lie on CVs could be forced to return large amounts of pay after judges ruled that salaries obtained fraudulently are proceeds of crime.
Today the Supreme Court ruled that a hospice boss must return nearly £100,000 after forging qualifications – including PhDs – when he was in fact an unqualified builder.
Five judges overturned a Court of Appeal ruling that the charity could not recover any part of Jon Andrewes’ salary.
Andrewes, 68, was jailed for two years in 2017 after pleading guilty to fraud over his faked CV, on the basis of which he became chairman of two NHS trusts and St Margaret’s Hospice in Taunton.
He held the job at the Somerset hospice from 2004 until his deception was uncovered.
