City man one of six arrested
A COVENTRY man was among six people arrested over a suspected £ 17m money laundering operation.
The 36- year- old was one of those arrested in Coventry, Luton and London by 80 officers from HM Revenue and Customs ( HMRC).
A residential property in the city was swooped on in simultaneous raids last week.
Chris Gill, from the HMRC said: “Tackling money laundering is a priority for HMRC and we will not hesitate to investigate those suspected of being involved. We ask anyone with information about this kind of activity to contact our HMRC Fraud Hotline on 0800 788 887.”
Four men and one woman, who were arrested and interviewed by HMRC, were released on bail and a man has been released under investigation.
Enquiries into the suspected fraud are ongoing.
