Lib Dem Fraud

A SHAMED former West Yorkshire councillor has been spared jailed despite being convicted of trying to rip off Kirklees Council by fraud.Ex-Heckmondwike Liberal Democrat councillor Tabasum Aslam, pictured, was last month convicted by a jury on four charges of dishonestly producing a false document to obtain benefits.But a judge yesterday ruled out a prison sentence as the loss of his "good name and character" were punishment enough.
