Ex-Councillor Jailed Over £430k Eat Out to Help Out Fraud.

Mohammed Ikram has been jailed for two-and-a-half years.

A former town councillor who tried to steal more than £430,000 through the Government’s Eat Out to Help out scheme has been jailed for two and a half years.

Mohammed Ikram made 19 fraudulent claims under then-Chancellor Rishi Sunak’s initiative over four weeks in August and September 2020.

Ikram, 36, made 19 fake claims totalling £434,073 through the scheme for eight different food outlets, six of the businesses were either “entirely fictitious” or legitimate companies he had no connection with.

Eight of the 19 claims were paid by the Government, with just over £189,000 being paid into bank accounts held by Ikram’s wife.
