South Armagh man given suspended jail term after HMRC investigation

A south Armagh man has been given a suspended prison sentence following an investigation by HM Revenue and Customs into diesel laundering.

Fifty-year-old Thomas Moley had been charged with fraud related offences.

This included allowing a shed, on defendant’s land close to his home in Crossmaglen, to be used for the purpose of fuel laundering.

The defendant was sentenced at Newry Crown Court to a total of 18 months in prison, which was suspended for two years.

The fuel laundering operations on Moley’s land were found on two separate dates, in November 2012 and again in July 2014.
