Fraud Trial Commences At Southampton Crown Court | Kangs Fraud Solicitors
Kangs Solicitors represent a client, (DH), who worked for a company, (KP), that dealt with Learning and Development Training within the IT sector and which company was taken over by another company, (CP).
During the acquisition KP continued to use its own IT systems that were not compatible with CP’s system and KP’s Finance Team was able to continue processing invoices and monitoring monthly figures and sales targets.
In 2013 DH and another employee of KP started their own company, (UP), while still working for KP.
UP was involved in the supply of training packages to companies that were existing clients of their employer, KP.
The Alleged Fraud
Setting up a company like this was against KP’s company policy and trading through UP, which was a breach of DH’s contract with KP, enabled UP’s sales team to direct business away from KP.
It is alleged that over a quarter of a million pounds was misappropriated by UP and they are also accused of laundering the proceeds of their criminal conduct.
The trial is due to commence at Southampton Crown Court today.
