Two people have been charged in connection with a £1m fraud after being extradited from Cyprus.

The fraud relates to goods and services being supplied to the NHS at inflated costs.

It is believed that the value of the fraud is £1m and GMP, working closely with the NHS, is investigating transactions that took place between March 2003 and October 2008.

Following an operation involving GMP and the National Crime Agency, on 30 December 2013, John Leigh (25/02/1960) and Deborah Hancox (12/11/1969), were extradited from Cyprus.

They appeared at Manchester City Magistrates’ Court on 31 December 2013 and have each been charged with trading for a fraudulent purpose, carrying on the business of a company with intent to defraud creditors/for other fraudulent purpose, conspiracy to defraud, conspiracy to commit fraud by abuse of position, conspiring to conceal criminal property and concealing criminal property.

They are next due to appear at Manchester Crown Court on 14 January 2014.

As part of the investigation Mushtaq Ahmed of Shay Fold, Bradford and Attia Bibi of Stonecliffe Drive, Leeds, have been charged with conspiracy to defraud and money laundering.
