Serious Fraud Office investigates Far North District Council

The Serious Fraud Office is investigating the Far North District Council.

The investigation comes after Far North Mayor John Carter and councillors commissioned an independent consultant to look into council activities late last year, the Kaikohe-based council said in a statement.

"The investigation was referred to the SFO who confirmed last week that it will conduct a formal investigation into the council," according to the statement.

Carter said the council is cooperating fully with the SFO and would not comment further.

Couldn't have a good look at Auckland Council while he was at it could he?

what about investigating what happened the $200 million handout John Key gave to a northern iwi on Waitangi Day last year?

Just one of many - everywhere.

Spent it all, have they?

But what accountability have we ever had shown in return for all these now billions of dollars simply removed from taxpayers' salary packets - for political advantage?

Iceberg. Tip.
