It has been reported that Simon Morris, the former Leeds United director, is to face criminal charges.

Mr Morris is alleged to have kept assets hidden when he was made bankrupt.

The 35-year-old, who was jailed in October 2011 for after being found guilty of conspiracy to blackmail his former business partner, now faces prosecution under the Insolvency Act over more than £1 million of assets including cash and gold bullion he allegedly hid in Swiss bank accounts when his property business collapsed in 2009.

The Yorkshire Evening Post has reported that a summons has been handed to Morris’s solicitors from the Department of Business Innovation and Skills ordering him to appear before magistrates next month.
