Bogus interpreter manages to infiltrate UK counter-terrorism unit

Red faces as bogus interpreter manages to infiltrate counter-terrorism unit – Telegraph

Everything appeared to be in order when the man turned up with an identity card assigned to an approved interpreter, Noor Mohammad.

However, when Mr Mohammad arrived on a subsequent occasion a senior detective realised his appearance had dramatically changed from a month earlier.

…he fake interpreter, named in court documents as Mian Ahmed Jan, is believed to have left Britain to live in Pakistan.

Mr Mohammad, 28, an expert in the Afghan dialect of Pashtun, has now been charged with six counts of conspiracy to commit fraud by false representation.

…”The work that this individual performed in relation to North West Counter-terrorism Unit investigations has been reviewed and there is nothing to indicate that any ongoing criminal investigations have been, or will be, compromised as a result of this.”
