Prison sentence for Brent politician
- Credit: Archant
A Brent politician will be sent to jail next Friday.
But Navin Shah is no expenses cheat as he will be thrown into a prison cell to raise money for a charity in Kenton.
The Labour Assembly member for Brent and Harrow, will become a free man when his £1,000 bail has been raised through donations which will be given to St Luke’s Hospice.
Mr Shah has ‘done time’ before when he took part in an identical charity mission in 2011 raising £5,000 for the charity.
He told the Times: “The hospice is a fantastic cause. I cannot think of an organisation that does so much for people in the community as they come to the end of their lives.
