Saido Mohamed, Greens municipality politician charged with felony money laundering – sister convicted in same skein of fraud
Criminal money laundering can receive a sentence of at least four months and up to six years of imprisonment.
Greens deputy, Saido Mohamedia, for Helsinki, has been prosecuted for gross money laundering. The secondary prosecution is an outrageous crime of concealment. Kela (Social Insurance Institution of Finland) is party to the incident.
The first to report the news item is Suomen Uutiset. The Helsinki District Court confirms to Iltalehti that the matter has been brought before the District Court on 9 May. The actual court proceedings are held in the autumn.
Criminal money laundering can be sentenced for at least four months and up to six years of imprisonment. The criterion of gross money laundering is that property acquired through crime has been very valuable or that crime has been devised in a special way.
Mr Mohamed’s sister was sentenced in the same kind of fraud to six months of suspended imprisonment last November because she had mistakenly had Kela to pay her 44 232 euros in child allowance.
The charge was lessened due to the fact that, according to the Court of Appeal, the degree of intent was not particularly high.
