Wellington City Council P-Card Fraud Disturbing
21 JULY 2014
Reacting to the Fairfax report that at least three Wellington City Council staff have been dismissed for fraudulently misusing their Council p-cards, Taxpayers' Union Executive Director Jordan Williams says:
“The Council’s lack of controls are disturbing. What confidence can Wellington ratepayers have when basic failings allow managers to sign off on their own expenses?”
“While the Council's CEO is trying to prevent a full audit of the council’s purchase cards, someone is before the courts for fraud. If that’s not a wake up call, what is?"
