Man denies pretending family died in the Grenfell Tower fire | London


A man has denied pretending his family died in the Grenfell Tower fire to get almost £10,000 from the victim relief fund.

Anh Nhu Nguyen, 52, claimed he lived in the North Kensington block and that his wife and son had died in the blaze, a previous court hearing was told.

Nguyen, of Beckenham, south-east London, is accused of conning charities and Kensington and Chelsea Council out of almost £10,000 by posing as a victim of the disaster for almost two weeks.

He was allegedly given a hotel room, clothing, food, electrical items and cash after he went to Westway Sports Centre, which had been set up as a relief hub, claiming to have lost all his possessions, Westminster Magistrates’ Court heard last month.

his trial is expected to take place at Southwark Crown Court in December.
