Waste fraudster to serve nine more years in jail

A notorious convicted fraudster who falsely claimed to have recycled huge volumes of electrical waste will serve a record 16 years in jail, after he refused to pay a £1.3m confiscation order.

Leeds Crown Court imposed an extra nine years on Terry Soloman Dugbo’s existing sentence last week during a proceeds of crime hearing. The 7.5 years he is currently serving was already a record for waste-related offences.

Dugbo, 48 and from the city, was ordered to pay the sum in February, having funded his luxurious lifestyle from cheating legitimate recyclers. He was jailed three years ago, having denied charges of fraud, acting as a director while disqualified and releasing ozone-destroying CFCs in breach of the Environmental Permitting Regulations.
