It’s a bit galling to see a politician make a pre-emptive public relations strike on such a serious matter. He should have consulted a solicitor as it appears he has just admitted to a criminal offence of fraud. A fraud is generally committed when a person knowingly or recklessly does an action with a view to making a gain. loss or benefit to himself or another.
Serious questions ought to asked as to why this liability to the taxpayer has been compromised in such a fashion.
All citizens are equal in the eyes of the law or are they ?
