He was taken to Liverpool Police Station and charged with fraud.

Fraud & Cybercrime Squad Commander, Detective Superintendent Arthur Katsogiannis, commended the meticulous work of investigators.

“Detectives are continuing to gather and examine claim forms and other documentation, and the results are showing their hard work is paying off,” Det Supt Katsogiannis said.

“Our investigation remains focused on the business model and dismantling it; one by one, we will put every person who knowingly played a part in defrauding the CTP scheme before the courts.

“That said, it’s not too late to come forward if you are, or have been, involved in submitting or facilitating fraudulent claims. Come and see us before we come for you,” Det Supt Katsogiannis said.
