Safety-box pair bailed

By Dana Gloger, October 17, 2008

Two well-known members of the Jewish community who were arrested in June in connection with the Metropolitan Police's first large-scale investigation into the use of safety-deposit boxes have been remanded on bail until January of next year.

Leslie Sieff, 60, and Milton Woolf, 52, both directors at Safe Deposit Centres Ltd, were arrested on suspicion of money-laundering after 300 officers conducted simultaneous raids on the company's three depots in Hampstead, Edgware and Mayfair in June.

They were originally bailed until September and have now been re-bailed. The police investigation continues.
