Ujima trial will go to crown court

A housewife and a consultant who were charged with money laundering after an investigation into suspected fraud at Ujima Housing Association will go to crown court.

Rose Avwunu, 53, of Purley, Surrey, and Paul Campagne, 46, of Coulsdon, Surrey appeared at City of Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday.

They were ordered to attend a preliminary hearing to set a trial at Southwark Crown Court on 22 January.

Ms Avwunu and Mr Campagne were arrested in March last year by officers from the Metropolitan police’s economic and specialist crime unit.

Ujima Housing Association’s 30-year history ended in January 2008 when its £1 billion assets were transferred to London & Quadrant Housing Trust.

  • Good! Kass will be pleased. However this is merely a sideshow to the central disaster of Kerrism at Ujima, or a minor symptom of it. It should not be allowed to become a distraction.

    Lessons are not being learned and the deviation of housing associations into a delusional "business" orientation is not, generally, being reversed.
