A BARRISTER is to stand trial accused of defrauding the public purse of about £600,000 over a 12-year period.

Rohan Anthony Parshad QC is alleged to have charged and received VAT payments in the course of his work as a barrister, but failed to declare or pass on the money between June 1999 and September 2011.

Keri Ashworth-Beaumont, prosecutor for the Crown Prosecution Service central fraud division, said: "After careful consideration of all the evidence, I am satisfied there is sufficient evidence for a realistic prospect of conviction and it is in the public interest to prosecute this case."

Parshad is due to appear before Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court on 2 August.
