A Greenwich councillor who applied for and lived in council housing while she owned three other properties has been found guilty of fraud.
It took a jury roughly an hour of deliberation to come to the decision on Tonia Ashikodi’s case at Inner London Crown Court today.
An hour..? Were the tea and biscuits that good?
Cllr Ashikodi remained silent as the verdict was read out.
No squawks of 'racism'? I'm astonished.
Addressing the councillor following the finding, Judge Benedict Kelleher said “these are serious matters”.
The judge added that he would consider “all sentencing options” when the matter returns to court on March 4.
Except jail, of course...
The court heard her councillor’s allowance was her only income.
If you believe that, I've got a bridge to sell!
