Man jailed over fraud

A man who defrauded a cleaning company out of £83,000 has been ordered to pay the money back to his victims or face more time in jail.

49 year old Demetris Fowles, from Station Street, Chatteris, had previously been jailed for 28 months for diverting the cash from Cambridgeshire Contract Cleaning Company into his personal account.

He had been found guilty of fraud by abuse of position and false accounting. He had been working as a Financial Controller for the firm.

He appeared at Peterborough Crown Court on Friday where a Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA) confiscation order for £82,993 was made against him.

He has three months to pay or faces a further 12 months behind bars.
