Tax cheat in the
North West named by HMRC
THE names of the UK's tax cheats have now been
published on HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC)
The HMRC days that publishing the names of deliberate tax defaulters
is part of HMRC's new approach to combating tax evasion and
non-compliance. "It ensures everyone pays their fair share,
creates a level playing field for honest people and businesses, and
cracks down on the minority who seek to evade tax." said the
HMRC in a press release. HMRC's Jennie Granger, Director General for
Enforcement and Compliance, told us that:- "The majority of
people pay the tax that is due but there is a small minority of
people who try to evade their responsibilities. Publishing these
names encourages others to get back on track by making a full and
prompt disclosure and cooperate with HMRC to avoid being named, all
the named defaulters have exhausted the appeals process. So, we will
continue to publish the names of tax cheats every quarter on our

tax fugitives was been published, to help track down fraudsters

MOTORISTS FOLLOWING MUM'S DISAPPEARANCE IN CHEETHAM HILL, MANCHESTER
DETECTIVES from Greater
Manchester Police are investigating the murder of mum of 3 Rania
Alayed have contacted hundreds of motorists to help trace a
campervan that could have been used in her disappearance.
In recent weeks officers from
Force, supported by teams from North Yorkshire, have been searching
a stretch of the A19 near Thirsk.
As part of the investigation,
detectives have established that a white campervan travelled from
Manchester to the A19 around the time of her disappearance.
It is believed the vehicle stopped at a layby by the
side of the A19 in the early hours of Saturday, 8 June 2013.
The exact location of that
specific layby is not known and GMP are now seeking help from the
public to help them find Rania.
Officers have now sent letters to the keepers of 350
vehicles travelling on the A19 or A168 between the junctions with
the A172 and A1(M) between the hours of 3am and 5am on Saturday, 8
The letter ask the driver, or anyone travelling in the vehicle, to
contact the investigation team if they have any information
concerning this white camper van Police believe was parked in a
lay-by on the northbound carriageway during this time.
Detective Chief Inspector Peter Marsh, of Greater Manchester
Police's Major Incident Team, said:- "I cannot begin to
imagine the hurt Rania's family are experiencing knowing she is
still missing. Since Rania disappeared in June we have been working
tirelessly to find her,and will continue to do so. 2 people have
been charged with her murder and as part of our investigation we are
now asking motorists who use this stretch of road to tell us if they
saw anything around the 8 June 2013. Ahmed Khatib (born 05/05/1980)
of Knutsford Road in Gorton was charged with murder and Muhanned
Mahmood Al Khatib, (born 19/5/75), of Arthur Millwood Court,
Salford, have been charged with murder and perverting the course of
justice. We are hoping to hear from anyone who saw this white
campervan and, in particular, if they saw it parked by the side of
the road or in a layby. I understand there might not be anything
unusual about a campervan parked on a layby in the early hours and I
recognise it might not have struck you as significant at the time.
However, we have reason to believe that Rania's body could be
located near to this stretch of road and this is where we have been
concentrating our searches. I am also interested to hear from anyone
walking in the area or working who may have seen some suspicious
activity or come across any unusual areas of ground such as a
disturbance, cut vegetation. The area in question is in excess of 15
miles long and we have a large amount of ground to cover. We have
been working closely with our colleagues in North Yorkshire Police
and have used specialist search equipment supplied by the military
to help locate her. As Rania still remains missing it is crucial
that we go to the next stage and publically appeal for information.
If you believe you saw Rania after 7pm on 7 June 2013, we are keen
to hear from you."
Anyone with information on the
movements of this white camper van, should contact the Major
Investigation Team on:- 0161 856 4711.
