Kamran Malik, a solicitor 35, Alum Rock, was sentenced to four years in jail for fraud offences for conning bank lenders into loaning money for over inflated property.
However he had an extra year added to his sentence last week after being found guilty of conspiring to pervert the court of justice. The court heard that Malik coerced a witness into signing a false statement, in an attempt to clear himself of the fraud charges.
The original investigation began in 2008, after a number of banks reported fraudulent lease agreements, which had conned them out of a total of £5.2 million.
Malik was one for four men charged, Olubunmi Olalekan, 42, Yardley was also charged with perverting the course of justice, and Umar Hussain, 25, Small Heath and Iftab Hussain, Alum Rock, both admitted furnishing false information and becoming concerned in money laundering.
