The court heard Pervaiz refutes the claim and insists she has repaid the sum. The dispute is set to be resolved through a Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA) hearing following her sentence, which has now been set for a date next month. Judge Carr added: "Your case is adjourned in order for a pre-sentence report. I am not holding any promises as to what your sentence will be, it is simply that whoever sentences you will have the fullest possible information about your background before deciding the right sentence." Pervaiz, of Swan Pool Grove, Shelfield, was granted bail.
