Paul Raudnitz: Notable case

R v Nabuguzi & others (Operation Spenser) (2012-Ongoing) (2014)

For the past 3 years, Paul Raudnitz and Kerry Broome have led a series of prosecutions as part of Operation Spenser – a multi-agency investigation uniting the UKBA, DWP and HMRC.  Operation Spenser targeted a multi-million pound immigration and benefit fraud stretching back over 20 years.  In May 2012, the main perpetrator, Ruth Nabuguzi, pleaded guilty to 26 offences including the global conspiracy to defraud numerous government departments and agencies.  In March 2014, a confiscation order in excess of £1.5m was made against her following a finding that she had hidden assets in Uganda.
On 25th October 2012 following a six week trial, Dennis Kyeyune, Jordan Sebutemba, Lamulah Sekiziyuvu and Albert Kaidi were convicted in relation to their involvement in the same conspiracy. Five other defendants had previously pleaded guilty to a range of related offences.

On 26 January 2013 following a two-week trial, Azu Akpom was convicted of misconduct and public office and five counts of fraud in connection with his work as a Registrar for the London Borough of Newham.  Akpom had issued fraudulent birth certificates to Ruth Nabuguzi and co-conspirators to enable fraudulent benefits claims to be made.

On 11 April 2014 Martial Tyson Nsoa was convicted of conspiracy to defraud and other associated offences.  He had previously absconded before returning to the UK to face prosecution.

So far, a total of 15 defendants have been successfully prosecuted and convicted, many of them following contested trials.
