Barking examiner who took bribes spared jail
A driving examiner who took �1,000 bribes to pass failed candidates walked free from court yesterday.
Kulwinder Mann, 47, passed some hapless learners without even taking them on the road and split backhanders with crooked colleagues at Barking test centre in Essex.
Mann, who suffers from mental health problems, was ruled unfit to plead due to his condition.
But a jury found he was guilty of criminal acts including conspiracy to commit bribery, obtaining a pecuniary advantage by deception and money laundering at Snaresbrook Crown Court.
Mann, of Chadwell Heath Lane, Chadwell Heath, was made the subject of a supervision order for the next 12 months in which time he will be treated by doctors.
