The husband of a Met Police officer who bankrolled their millionaire lifestyle with the profits of a cocaine and cannabis supply ring, is facing years in prison.
Julian Agalliu, 47, sold drugs packaged with the luxury Hublot brand through the notorious EncroChat communication system, and splashed out on a £70,000 Audi, designer clothes, and homes in the upmarket Hadley Wood enclave of Barnet, north London.
When he was caught, there was a bowl of cocaine next to the bed Agalliu shared with his wife, PC Rasvinder Agalliu.
The officer, a former beauty queen, was sacked by the Met after a discplinary tribunal rejected her claim to have known nothing about her husband’s drugs empire.
The PC of 15 years claimed she thought his money came from working as a chef to professional footballers, and she tried to paint him as “controlling”.
But the tribunal concluded: “Mr Agalliu in our view was not hiding his drug use within the home. There were drugs and the means to supply them clearly evident in her home and we are satisfied she knew they were there.”
The full evidence from the misconduct hearing can be reported after Agalliu was convicted by a jury of supplying class A and class B, and was remanded in custody until sentencing in February next year.
Rasvinder Agalliu was a PC in the Metropolitan Police
“Do she have any information?”, an associate said, adding: “What if she gets hold of the EncroChat? Tell her to hide the papers.”
Police found drugs in a Louis Vuitton box under Agalliu’s bed, as well as £27,000 in cash at his home.
PC Agalliu’s tribunal referred to the couple using cars worth £250,000, rent payments of £5000-a-month, and a property worth £1.8 million.
“Her husband would earn between £1000 and £4000 a week for his work as a private chef working in footballers’ homes”, the tribunal said, of PC Agalliu’s evidence.
“He would work weekends and sometimes after training he would go to their houses to cook. He was paid in cash.”
The ruling continued: “She said she questioned how much her husband was getting from footballers and parties but was told to shut up and stay out of it and it was none of her business. It was put to her that they were living beyond their means. She said it was not her doing this, it was him.”
Claims that drugs were planted at her home were rejected by the panel, who concluded she was guilty of gross misconduct.
PC Agalliu, a mother-of-three, was sacked, but did not face any criminal charges following the raid on her home.
Daniel McNeil-Duncan, from Brentwood in Essex, who had been in regular contact with Julian Agalliu on EncroChat, pleaded guilty to two charges of conspiracy to supply drugs shortly after the trial began.
Agalliu, from Hadley Wood, denied but was convicted of conspiracy to supply class A drugs, conspiracy to supply class B drugs, possession with intent to supply cocaine, and possession of criminal property.
Both will be sentenced on February 9.
