Brothers guilty of housing benefits scam

Between them Reggie, Olga and Jessie Gnanaratnam were charged with 10 counts of obtaining property by deception after illegally claiming £53,604 in benefits for seven years.

Ringleader Reggie, 49, pleaded guilty to five counts of deception, landing him a 12 month sentence suspended for two years and 200 hours of unpaid work, while younger brothers Jessie, 47, and 42-year-old Olga admitted three counts each (one joint charge) landing them nine month and eight month suspended sentences respectively.
