Undercover Police Caught Prosecutor

Mirror (London), June 29, 2010

Undercover police caught a corrupt senior Crown prosecutor in a elaborate sting to prove he took cash to use his position to discontinue a case, a jury has heard.

Sarfraz Ibrahim, 51, of Cyncoed, Cardiff, South Wales, admitted corruption and related charges on Monday on the eve of a trial.

As Gwent Crown Prosecution Service trials unit chief he had the power to stop a case in its tracks, recommending “no further action”, or deciding it should go to trial.

Co-defendant Saifur Rahman Khan, 37, of Penlan, Cardiff, went on trial as planned, claiming police manipulated him into helping Ibrahim.

Ibrahim admitted a charge of corruption, attempting to pervert the course of justice and misconduct in public office, between May and August 2009. Khan denies a charge of aiding and abetting Ibrahim’s misconduct in public office and attempting to pervert the course of justice.
