Guildford Conservative councillor charged with fraud, deception and pretending to be a barrister

A Conservative councillor in Guildford has been charged with forgery, fraud by false representation, obtaining monetary advantage by deception and wilfully pretending to be a barrister.

Cllr Monika Juneja claimed that the investigation into her falsely claiming to be a barrister was a racist campaign against her to undermine the council's local plan. She had used forge letters and qualifications to obtain legal roles at several councils over a 14 year period.

Juneja will appear before Guildford Magistrates Court next Tuesday to answer all seven charges.
