Trio from Barking and Dagenham charged in major police investigation into court corruption
A trainee barrister and two others have been charged as part of a major police investigation into corruption and bribery at a court.
The trio, all from Barking and Dagenham, were charged and bailed this month alongside 20 others as a result of the Met’s Operation Teemin investigation into Barkingside Magistrates’ Court.
The investigation was launched after an allegation of corruption was made by a reporter at a national newspaper in August 2011.
Trainee barrister Karandeep Sanghera, 24, of Eric Road, Chadwell Heath, was charged with misconduct in a public office while Naim Mahmud, 21, of The Shaftesburys, Barking, and Sabrina Georgiades, 33, of Becontree Avenue, Dagenham, were charged with perverting the course of justice.
All three are due to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Monday.
