Former Mep Must Repay £345,000 Expenses

Recommended Posts

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/former-mep-must-repay-345000-expenses-2251647.html

Former Tory MEP Den Dover, who was expelled from the Conservative Party over allegations of expenses misconduct, has been ordered by the European Court of Justice to repay £345,289 in "unjustified" claims.

Mr Dover, 72, an MEP for the North West England region from 1999 to 2009, was suspended and then expelled from the party in November 2008 for "gross misconduct" after the Parliament demanded repayment of £538,000 in allowances officials said should not have been claimed.

That's virtually a porn star name :)

Another trougher.

I heard this on Radio 2 news bulletin.

He denied that he did anything wrong. So why pay the money back if he's adamant not to have broken the rules. What a plum. :rolleyes:

"Former Tory MEP Den Dover, who was expelled from the Conservative Party over allegations of expenses misconduct, has been ordered by the European Court of Justice to repay £345,289 in "unjustified" claims"

"The MEP has denied any wrongdoing over expenses he claimed between 1999 and 2008, when a total of £959,446 went to a company called MP Holdings Ltd, which names Mr Dover's wife and daughter as directors"

I can't wait for all the euros to have their expenses leaked.

MEPs do not claim expenses they are all paid a fixed rate which has to cover running their offices, travel back and forth to the European Parliament and other Parliamentary buildings. IIRC they can`t refuse these payments. Farage once paid some of his to a Charity and was fined I believe for improper use. <_<

I imagine all those documents hit the shredder a nanosecond after the expenses scandal broke here. Much like Tony Blair's.

Did I say hit the shredder? I meant were lost, by accident you understand....
