The fraud trial of the former chief executive of the All Wales Ethnic Minority Association (AWEMA) has got under way at Swansea Crown Court this morning.
65-year-old Nasir Malik is accused of paying cheques from the now defunct charity AWEMA into his personal bank account to clear his credit card bills, as well as using the charities money to pay for a life insurance policy.
Malik denies all three charges of fraud, claiming the cheques were to cover work expenses owed to him and the insurance policy was being developed for all staff at the charity. The trial continues.
