ICL expense fiddler gets 14 months

Programmer made 330 fake claims

An ICL programmer has been jailed for 14 months for fiddling his expenses.

Christian Ignat claimed £65,000 over two years. He said he had made 330 fake expense claims.

Ignat, aged 32, from Mitcham in Surrey, appeared in Reading Crown Court facing 30 charges relating to 10 false expense claims. He asked for a further 320 claims to be taken into consideration.

He'd been putting in claims for PCs and computer games and had been using the same receipts more than once.

Ignat joined ICL in February 1999 as a programmer. ®
