As I noted previously here, police had initially responded to a High Court judge’s call for a criminal investigation into the events which led to a breach of contract by announcing that an independent expert would be appointed to review and report on the process of addressing the issues arising from the case. Today the police appeared to change their minds and, as the BBC report, have stated that the fraud squad will conduct a criminal investigation.. and they will be advised by an external independent expert.
We are reader supported. Donate to keep Slugger lit!
For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.
Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger. While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.
If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
