A HARROW man is one of several people arrested in connection with alleged international money laundering.
Mayuran Kuhathasan, 38, appeared in court on Saturday following after a dawn raid at a house by Border Force officers in conjunction with the police from the East Midlands Special Operation Unit, and HM Revenue and Customs officers.
His co-defendant, Thuraisamy Pathmanabhan, 63, of Weybridge, Surrey, was similarly arrested.
Kuhathasan, of Minehead Road, Harrow, and Pathmanabhan face a single charge, of conspiracy to conceal, disguise, convert, transfer or remove criminal property.
They were bailed by Reigate magistrates in Surrey until Wednesday next week, when there will be a crown court committal hearing at the same court.
Connected raids happened elsewhere in which a 45-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of money laundering at a residential address in Teddington, south-west London, and a 33-year-old-woman was arrested on suspicion of money laundering at a business address in Hampton Hill, south-west London.
Both were bailed by police until March 1.
No arrests were made at two further raids, on a home in Epsom, Surrey, and at an office in London Docklands.
