Four men guilty in sham marriages case

February 15, 2013, 10:00 am

Four men have been found guilty money laundering and immigration
offences at the Old Bailey today, Thursday 14 February:

Tevfick Souleiman (7.11.73 – 39 years) of Georges Wood Road, Brookmans
Park, Hatfield, Herts;

Zafer Altinbas (26.8.74 – 38 years) of Bemerton Street, London, N1;

Cenk Guclu (28.4.71 – 41 years) of Links Side, Enfield, EN2;

Farruh Fosimov (05.08.1983 – 28 yrs) of no fixed abode;

were found guilty of one count of Conspiracy Contrary to Section 25 of
the Immigration Act and one count of money laundering.

It follows an investigation by the MPS Central Task Force, working with
UKBA and HMRC, into the creation and use of fake documents to support
“sham marriages” by the law firm Souleiman GA (SGS) Solicitors. They
then went on to pay “ghost employees” to reduce the firm’s tax
liability.

In July 2010, Souleiman, Altinbas and Guclu were charged with conspiracy
to facilitate the commission of a breach of UK Immigration Law. All of
them were also charged with money laundering.

Sentencing will take place at the Old Bailey on Monday 18 February.
