Mohamed Bouzalim

November 26, 2011

A benefits fraudster who claimed he was bed-ridden, yet was filmed dancing at his own wedding, has been jailed.

Mohamed Bouzalim, 37, cheated the authorities out of nearly £400,000, Isleworth Crown Court heard.

He will serve nearly seven years for 11 counts of deception, fraud and assisting illegal entry into the UK.

Robert Coxhead is the senior investigating officer from the UK Border Agency Criminal and Financial Investigation team.

Speaking to the BBC’s Guy Smith, he said: “Mohamed Bouzalim was a top class fraudster and con artist. His whole life was a lie.”

    It is people like this who give disabled people a bad name. How many more people are like this fraudster, I shudder to think?
    I just hope the public realise he is an able bodied person and a criminal, and has nothing to do with disability and disabled people whatsoever.
