Ex-Carlisle man back from Spain for fraud trial

A former Carlisle man will be returning from his new home in Spain next year to face trial on fraud charges.

Ian Geoffrey Bell, 74, appeared at the city’s Crown Court this week on charges alleging that he had pocketed benefits to which he was not entitled.

He pleaded not guilty to evading a liability by deception, arising from the social security benefits he was paid between February 2003 and July 2009, and to dishonestly failing tocancel a £9,118 pension credit.

He also denied dishonestly making a false representation in December 2002, and failing to declare that he had a financial interest in a property in Spain and that he was married.

Bell was allowed bail, which means he will be able to live at his home inTorrequebrada, Benalmadena, until his trial, which is scheduled to start on May 6.
