Circumstances of Alleged Breaches

Between 8 August 2019 and 24 July 2020 Special Police Constable Malik made numerous fraudulent expense claims totalling £29,501.89. He was arrested on 24 July and an investigation commenced.

On 25 May 2022 MSC Malik appeared at Woolwich Crown Court charged with Fraud. He pleaded ‘Not Guilty’ to the charge. Following a Trial he was found guilty and convicted of Fraud Contrary to Section 2 of the Fraud Act 2006 and Money Laundering contrary to Section 327 of the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002.

On 6 July 2022, at the same court he was sentenced to 24 months imprisonment, suspended for 24 months, for the offence of Fraud and 12 months imprisonment suspended for 24 months for the offence of Money Laundering, the sentences to run concurrently. He was also ordered to carry out 150 hours of unpaid work, pay costs of £2600.00 and a victim surcharge of £149.00.

Additionally he was required to observe a daily curfew between the hours of 9.30pm and 5am for a period of three months.

The behaviour set out above is alleged to amount to gross misconduct and, if proven, would justify MSC Malik’s dismissal from The Metropolitan Police Service without notice.
