A corrupt senior Crown prosecutor who pocketed cash to use his position to discontinue a case had spiralling debts of almost £1 million, a jury has heard.
Sarfraz Ibrahim, 51, of Cyncoed, Cardiff, South Wales, admitted corruption and related charges on Monday, on the eve of his trial.
As Gwent Crown Prosecution Service trials unit chief he had the power to stop a case in its tracks by recommending no further action.
He admitted charges of corruption, attempting to pervert the course of justice and misconduct in public office. His pleas mean Ibrahim has admitted pocketing £20,000 to ensure the case of a man he believed to be guilty was discontinued.
Funny that, eh? Might be something to bear in mind next time these fuckers make a curious judgement call.
