A SENIOR NHS manager who wrongly harboured more than £146,000 of public money in bank accounts he controlled avoided jail yesterday.
Sajid Khan, of Walmer Villas, Bradford, previously admitted retaining the money in bank accounts belonging to members of his family, including his grandmother, Bradford Crown Court heard.
The 34-year-old held £146,143.10 of NHS money between September 2005 and last February without declaring or repaying the funds.
Khan, a father-of-two, pleaded guilty to dishonestly retaining a wrongful credit in January.
Since then he and his family have paid back all the money to Bradford and Airedale Primary Care Trust, where he used to work as an assistance finance manager.
Khan received a one-year prison sentence, suspended for two years with 250 hours of unpaid work and pay £25,000 in court costs
