AWEMA investigation: Naz Malik to appear in court


The former Chief Executive Officer of the All Wales Ethnic Minority Association is to be charged with fraud.

Catrin Attwell, Senior Crown Prosecutor for the Crown Prosecution Service Wales Complex Casework Unit, said:

"The Crown Prosecution Service has provided early advice and guidance to South Wales Police as their investigation into alleged offences committed by personnel connected to the All Wales Ethnic Minority Association has developed.

"I have now completed a formal review of the evidence gathered by the police, in accordance with the Code for Crown Prosecutors.

"My conclusion is that there is sufficient evidence and it is in the public interest to charge Naz Malik with three offences of fraud by false representation."

Detective Inspector Dave Runnalls head of the economic crime unit at South Wales Police said:  "We will now be issuing a summons against Naz Malik and he will be charged when he attends court at a date and venue to be confirmed."
