John Mohammed, of Field Close, was jailed for two years in March after he admitted fraud totalling £21,868. But at a Proceeds of Crime Act hearing at Peterborough Crown Court on Thursday (June 19) he was ordered to repay the nominal fee. At an earlier hearing, the court heard how 62-year-old Mohammed had taken the money from the North District Marine Society and Sea Cadets in London, for which he was a volunteer treasurer, between 2010 and October last year. He said he used the money to buy a car, help his sons business and to pay off debts, having suffered financial problems after both he and his wife retired. When sentencing, Recorder Gregory Perrins acknowledged a number of letters telling of the high respect and regard Mohammed had been held in, but said he had shown a dishonest streak. The cadets affected by his fraud had been from some of the poorest areas of London, he added.
