MD of Cisco's partner of the year goes down for six months
Judge decides on fraud case
The managing director of NSC Technology, Muhammed Yaseem, has been given a six-month jail sentence for his part in a computer parts fraud. He will also have to pay £10,000 in prosecution costs.
Co-defendant Jonathan Palmer (not of NSC) was also given six months and a £5,000 fine. Charles Warner Allen was found not guilty.
Mr Yaseem started NSC Technology with two others in 1992, and it was voted Cisco Gold Partner of the year. It has offices worldwide with its headquarters in London.
Mr Yaseem pleaded guilty to several counts of fraud. Judge Blackfell QC made note of the men's previous good characters but nevertheless handed down the two six-month sentences.
Neither NSC Technology nor Cisco have come back to us with a statement regarding Mr Yaseem's jail sentence. ®
