A Confiscation Order has been granted against a man who obtained £10,015 in benefits he was not entitled to over a five-year period.
John Given (62), of Woodland Drive, Prehen, claimed Income Support and Jobseekers Allowance on the grounds of being a full-time carer who had no savings or other source of income.
At yesterday’s confiscation hearing, Londonderry Crown Court granted an order for £9,332 with a sentence of 12 months in default of non-payment.
