174. Cllr. Tabasum Aslam

A SHAMED former West Yorkshire councillor has been spared jailed despite being convicted of trying to rip-off Kirklees Council by fraud. Ex-Heckmondwike Liberal Democrat councillor Tabasum Aslam was in 2007 convicted by a jury on four charges of dishonestly producing a false document to obtain benefits. But a judge yesterday ruled out a prison sentence as the loss of his "good name and character" were punishment enough. http://tinyurl.com/549vpm
