Lee Murray's Jail Sentence Increased from 10 Years to 25 Years

6

"A cage-fighter jailed in Morocco for his part in a cash raid at a depot in Kent - the UK's biggest - has had his sentence increased from 10 to 25 years. Lee Murray, originally from south London, was named during the trial of other gang members as the "mastermind" of the £53m Securitas raid. Murray, who has Moroccan nationality, fled there after the raid in 2006. Kent Police said his sentence was increased at a hearing in Rabat after the prosecution appealed. A police spokeswoman said lawyers had argued that Murray's sentence was too lenient. An appeal by Murray against the length of his sentence was dismissed at Tuesday's hearing. The Moroccan authorities refused to extradite Murray to the UK for trial but worked with Kent Police on his prosecution in the north African country."
