£12k fine for Ca­ble ‘hoax’

Daily Mirror - - NEWS -

A MAN has been fined for falsely nam­ing Lib Dem leader Vince Ca­ble as direc­tor of a com­pany.

Kevin Brewer, 65, was show­ing how easy it was to fool Com­pa­nies House.

In 2013, he told the then Busi­ness Sec­re­tary: “We formed a com­pany in your name with­out con­sent.”

Brewer, of Ul­len­hall, Warks, ad­mit­ted false fil­ing and was fined £1,602 by Red­ditch mag­is­trates with £10,462 costs. Mr Ca­ble called it “heavy-handed”.
