普雷斯科特男子被指控在覆層安全表格方面存在欺詐行為

默西塞德郡警方表示,這名來自普雷斯科特Knowsley Lane的男子被指控犯有與2020年的88份表格有關的虛假陳述欺詐罪。

這些表格被稱為ESW1表格,是在2017年格倫費爾大廈火災後推出的,以便對覆層的潛在火災風險進行評估。

"這些表格要求適當的專業人士確認檢查已經完成,但在2020年11月,高層公寓樓的居民報告說,共有88份表格被一個無權簽字的人簽掉了,"該警察說。

"這些報告涵蓋了2020年6月23日至11月12日期間,是由國家欺詐情報局轉給默西塞德郡警察局的,影響到包括南威爾士和倫敦等地的居民。

"沒有有效的EWS1表格,居民無法證明他們的財產風險有限,這影響了他們獲得抵押貸款的能力。"

警方表示,此後已完成了對這些房產的正確檢查並獲得授權。

格倫費爾大火造成72人死亡,五年後,政府禁止了使大火迅速蔓延的特定類型的覆層。

The man, of Knowsley Lane in Prescot, was charged with fraud by false representation relating to 88 forms in 2020, Merseyside Police said.

Known as ESW1 forms, they were introduced after the Grenfell Tower fire in 2017 so cladding could be assessed for potential fire risks.

"The forms require an appropriate professional to confirm the checks have been completed, but in November 2020 residents of high-rise apartment buildings reported a total of 88 forms had been signed off by a person who was not authorised to sign them," the force said.

"The reports, covering the period between June 23 and November 12 2020, were referred to Merseyside Police by the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau and affected residents in locations including South Wales and London.

"Without valid EWS1 forms, the residents were unable to evidence the limited risk to their properties, which affected their ability to get mortgages."

Police said correct checks had since been completed and authorised on the properties.

Five years after the Grenfell fire which killed 72 people the government banned the specific type of cladding which allowed the blaze to spread so rapidly.
