Tax cheat must repay £84,000

A gangmaster who dodged tax with an elaborate smokescreen of companies has been ordered to repay £84,000 or face further jail time.

Sukhninder Singh, of Pennycress Drive, Thetford, was jailed for 18 months on January 27 last year for cheating the taxman out of £350,000 from 2003 to 2009.

On Wednesday, Norwich Crown Court ordered him to repay £84,000 in six months or serve another 21 months in prison.
