Man charged following 'Olympic closing ceremony fraud' arrests

Detectives from Operation Podium have charged a man with fraud offences involving the Olympic Games.

The investigation began after dance schools in Northamptonshire received offers for their pupils to participate in the closing ceremony of the Olympic Games.

Olympic organisers LOCOG alerted the police to what were suspected as being fraudulent offers. Officers have now arrested 35 year-old Steve Moonesamy, from Northampton. A 31 year-old woman has also been arrested and taken to an east London police station where she was bailed.
