A woman who had a business exporting second-hand clothes to developing countries has appeared in Jersey's Magistrate's Court charged with fraudulently using more than £200,000 given for items for her own use.

The majority of the 10 charges faced by Michelle Anne Yuksel relate to money given to Parisma or to one called Logistics2Go, for goods, which she then allegedly used for her own expenses and debts.

One of the charges relates to money she is said to have taken for goods which she knew she couldn't deliver.

All of the charges date back to between December 2010 and December 2013 and range from £8,426.20 to £40,700 allegedly fraudulently claimed from individuals.

Ms Yuksel is originally from in Lincolnshire but lives in St Clement in Jersey.

She was granted bail, to return for her next court hearing on the 11th September, when the case will be committed to Jersey's Royal Court.
