Norfolk: Men Jailed For Fraud Case

Two men have been sentenced to a total of 22 years in prison for their part in a multi-million pound fraud against a Norfolk businessman.

Two men have been sentenced to a total 22 years' imprisonment for their parts in a multi-million pound fraud investigation.

Over the past two months George Katcharian, 60, and Cemal Esmene, 56, have stood trial at Norwich Crown Court after a Norfolk businessman and a church lost millions of pounds in investments.

On Friday (18 October) both men were found guilty by a jury – Danish national Katcharian was convicted of two charges of conspiracy to defraud and Esmene, a Turkish Cypriot national, was convicted of one charge of conspiracy to defraud and one charge of conspiracy to launder criminal property.

Today, Monday 22 October, both men were each sentenced to 11 years' imprisonment.

It follows the successful conviction of three other men in June this year relating to the same matter.
