The former boss of a fake Bradford college, who is serving 16 years in jail for drug smuggling, has been ordered to pay back almost £30,000 of his ill-gotten gains.

A confiscation hearing under the Proceeds of Crime Act, at Bradford Crown Court, ruled that Mohammed Faisal’s recoverable assets totalled £29,217.

The benefit from his illegal dealings was not known.

Faisal, of Tyne Street, Wapping, Bradford, was managing director of Yorkshire College in Manningham Lane.

He was convicted of drug smuggling and money-laundering in June 2009.
