Post Office vans collected millions of laundered cash from terraced house, jury told


https://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/news/leicester-news/post-office-vans-collected-millions-3301531

 

A multi-million money pound money laundering operation, in a terraced house in Leicester, had so much cash that Post Office vans called three times a week to collect up to £25,000 a time, a jury was told.

During a 16 month period £6,037,330 was received in cash from Rushi Investments, in Canon Street, Belgrave, and deposited by the Post Office with a legitimate company, Choice Money Transfer - which then transferred the money to overseas companies, it was claimed.

Three men and two women are on trial at Leicester Crown Court accused of running a professional money laundering operation, Rushi Investments, an alleged sham money transfer business.

The prosecution claim about £11 million of unexplained cash was processed using a number of genuine money transfer bureaux (MSB) based on bogus receipts from many non-existent customers and using false invoices.

It is alleged "dirty money" was put through the books with bogus paperwork to make it appear legitimate before it was transferred to Hong Kong and India.

On trial are Chauhan Yogendrasinh, 55, director of the alleged money laundering business, Rushi Investments, and his wife Moushamiben Chauhan, 52,  both of Lichfield Drive, Blaby.

The co-accused are the alleged employees, Bhavesh Suclo (40) of Westbourne Street, Belgrave, his wife Jignasha (56), of Canon Street, Belgrave, and Pankashbai Deugi (52), of Wand Street, Belgrave.

All five deny conspiracy to transfer criminal property between January 2011 and March 2016.

Yogendrasinh and Suclo also deny conspiring to convert criminal property in relation to the purchase of a property, at 62 Westbourne Street.

Earlier in the trial, the prosecutor, Michelle Heeley QC, told the jury: "The prosecution cannot say from what criminal enterprise this money has come from, but we say the amount of money and the lengths that have been gone to hide it mean that it is criminal money that is being laundered."
