Jailed ex-Revenue man ordered to pay £114k
A court has ordered a former Inland Revenue employee serving a four-year prison sentence to pay £114,245 over the next nine months.
Judge Charles Gibson made the confiscation order, at Inner London Crown Court, against 49-year old Errol Mark.
Mark was jailed in September 2004 after being found guilty of cheating the public revenue of more than £185,000.
The Revenue reported that Judge Gibson said: "Errol Mark was the inside man. He was aware of the internal processes and computer systems. None of the fraudulent claims could have succeeded without him.
