Trivia

This British movie was filmed as a result of an attempt to claim £2.8million for a film that was never intended to be made. Bashar Al-Issa, 34, from Maida Vale, London; Aoife Madden, 31, from Northern Ireland; Tariq Hassan, 52, from Essex, Ian Sherwood, 53, and Osama Al Baghdady, 42, both from Manchester, all claimed a Jordanian film company was financing a larger scale version of the movie, to the tune of over £19million. After the group tried to claim VAT and tax credits, HMRC (Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs) followed up on the claim, and discovered that no work had been done on the movie, and that most of the named suppliers had never even heard of the project. The group were arrested, and while on bail, made the much smaller budgeted movie as an attempt to escape prison. The investigation led to HMRC's first prosecution for film tax relief fraud. "This gang thought they could exploit rules for genuine British film-makers and thieve from the public purse for their own gain," said John Pointing of HMRC's Assistant Director of Criminal Investigation. Al-Issa was convicted of two counts of conspiracy to cheat the public revenue and the others of one count of that offence each at Southwark Crown Court. On 25th March 2013 the five were handed prison sentences ranging from three years and six months to six years. See more »
