That this House congratulates officers from the Sierras team of the Criminal Investigation Directorate of HM Revenue and Customs for their hard work, skill and tenacity in securing convictions and significant terms of imprisonment against 15 members of criminal gangs in the 176 million Missing Trader Intra Community VAT fraud known as Operation Inertia; and recognises that this represented one of the longest and most complex investigations embarked upon, with the team operating in a determined and professional manner to uncover evidence to bring before the courts to ensure many organised criminals were brought to justice, protecting and securing millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money in the process.
