Prison inmate uses radio advertising to plug book.
Prisoner Stephen Jory has written a book and is advertising it on London radio stations.
Jory was arrested in 1998 for his role in Britain's biggest counterfeiting operation and is currently serving an eight-year sentence in Spring Hill open prison in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, UK, for the production and distribution of fake GBP10 and GBP20 notes.
The 30-second radio advert, costing Jory GBP11,000, promotes his recently published book 'Funny Money'. It is being aired on London's Capital Gold and XFM stations and was approved by the radio authority just a day after the row over the Jeffrey Archer diaries, reported the Evening Standard.
