A former finance director who was jailed for defrauding the NHS, companies and individuals has been ordered to pay back nearly £240,000 and faces an additional 20 months in prison if he fails to pay.
He was sentenced to 11 years and five months imprisonment at Leeds Crown Court on 15 April 2021, after he pleaded guilty to 10 counts of fraud and two counts of theft.
He used his authority in job positions to take advantage of and defraud a wide variety of victims of over £1.3 million. He defrauded companies, three NHS trusts and individuals.
The stolen money was used to fund his own lavish lifestyle, including buying several properties and travelling to foreign countries, including a trip to Malta.
