Solicitor jailed for money laundering and fraud

first_imgA solicitor whose lavish lifestyle included driving a Lamborghini worth more than £80,000 was jailed last week for four years and eight months after a joint investigation by the police and Solicitors Regulation Authority. Benjamin Cornelius, 37, was convicted at Cardiff Crown Court of money laundering and mortgage fraud amounting to more than £650,000 on behalf of drug dealer David Carl Richards. The jury heard that Cornelius disguised his involvement in the money laundering and fraud, misleading his then employer, law firm William Parry of Swansea, as well as the various financial institutions involved in the property purchases. Police raided Cornelius’s home in October 2009, and his assets were restrained by court order so that he could not sell them while the regional asset recovery team worked with the SRA to discover how much he had profited from his crimes. He sold the Lamborghini in breach of the court order. Richards was convicted of drug trafficking in July 2010 and is now serving a 12-year sentence. Detective superintendent Chris Dodd of Wales-wide police taskforce Tarian said: ‘Without dishonest solicitors, accountants and financial advisers, criminals would find it much harder to hide or try to legitimise their criminal property… We are grateful for the invaluable assistance of the SRA.’last_img read more

Air Charter International eyes prospects of emerging markets

first_imgThe report states that “world air cargo traffic will expand at an average annual rate of 5.8 percent for the next two decades, tripling current traffic levels. Markets connecting developing economies to established economies will either approximate or exceed the average world growth rate.”Companies in various industry sectors will be looking to penetrate these emerging markets, many of which are located in high-risk or remote areas, such as: Libya, the former Soviet Republics, the Arctic, Alaska, Africa and the Americas and will require a variety of logistical cargo project services and cargo air charters.Logistical projects require global shipments with particular requirements, such as: heavy transports, outsized cargo, and cargo with time sensitive or security constraints to locations that are remote and difficult to access; will consequently contribute to the estimated growth in air cargo traffic.Stuart Wheeler, CEO of Air Charter International says; “Sound planning is the backbone of every such project and with our extensive experience, Air Charter International, can source the ideal aircraft to fit the job in time critical situations, as well as overall supervision of loading and discharge operations.”He says that Air Charter International has experience in assisting governments and affiliated agencies with delivery of heavy lift goods and infrastructure components into crisis areas or reconstruction zones.In mining, oil and gas sectors, industries that are directly influenced by the growth of developing countries, transportation of specialized chemicals and capital equipment (mining processing plants, rigs, pipelines, cooling towers and generators and spare parts) have been the main stay of Air Charter International’s air logistics solutions.last_img read more
