Outrage In The Keighley Community Following Yesterday’s Ruling By A Judge


There’s outrage in the Keighley community today following yesterday’s ruling by a judge that two local men will pay only £1 each in a proceeds of crime hearing.
The two men – Shazad Shad of Edensor Road and Ishad Hussein, who lives in Spencer Street, benefited to the tune of almost £170,000 between them in a crash for cash scam.
Both men were handed suspended sentences following their trial, which upset many, given the enormity of their crime.
They’d made 300 bogus insurance claims, the cost of which will go on innocent motorists premiums, in particular in the Bradford & Keighley areas.
Now the judge in the proceeds of crime hearing has reluctantly imposed the £1 orders when it was revealed neither had any more in terms of realisable assets.
To add insult to injury the two men were each given 28 days to pay.
