A MAN from Dewsbury has been charged in connection with a £2m fraud.
The 33-year-old, and two other men aged 35 and 36, from Leicester, are accused of conspiring to steal £2,036,618 from the University of Sussex in October 2010.
It is alleged that money paid by the university for building work on new student accommodation was unlawfully diverted to an unrelated account, Sussex Police said.
The prosecution follows an investigation by the force’s major fraud unit.
The men are due to appear at Leicester Magistrates’ Court.
