WOMAN IN COURT FOR FALSELY CLAIMING TO BE GRENFELL TOWERS FIRE VICTIM FOR CASH

A woman will appear in court later today after being accused of falsely claiming she was a Grenfell Tower victim to receive cash from an emergency fund.

Joyce Msokeri, 46, has been charged with fraud after making claims for support, Scotland Yard said.

Msokeri, of Ambleside Gardens, Sutton, is due to appear in custody at Westminster Magistrates’ Court where she will face six charges of fraud.

She was arrested on July 25 after allegedly making claims for support being provided to the survivors of the fire and charged yesterday, the Metropolitan Police said in a statement.

In July, Anh Nhu Nguyen, 52, of Beckenham, appeared in court where he denied trying to claim £10,000 in money and goods by falsely claiming that his wife and son had died in the tower fire.

Anyone with any information about fraud being committed is asked to contact the team investigating the fatal fire at Grenfell Tower on 0800 032 4539.
