DCC Citifleet, [a] Deloitte report leaked

DCC logo (fraud) 2

WHY WASN’T THE SERIOUS FRAUD OFFICE CALLED IN RIGHT FROM THE VERY START WHEN CR LEE VANDERVIS ALERTED FORMER DCC CHIEF EXECUTIVE PAUL ORDERS TO CAR FRAUD ???

Then too, think of all the people who had access to the Deloitte reports (plural) – more specifically those without access to the digitised data report. That ‘narrows’ the field of leaks to Deloitte itself, NZ Police, private investigators, counsel, privileged council staff, privileged mayor and (some) councillors, those council staff whose lawyers worked on their ‘resignations’ / exit packages….
Who else? A veritable feast.

No-one named in the ODT today hasn’t been mentioned at What if? posts and comments previously – this includes the names of the car companies.

Nothing to hide, says car buyer
By Chris Morris
Wayne “Tubby” McFadyen says he has nothing to hide. Instead, the man identified as one of the main buyers of Citifleet vehicles says the Dunedin City Council should be looking “in the mirror” if it wants to point the finger. “If there’s anyone to blame, it all falls on their heads too. They can blame everyone else for buying vehicles and whatever they want to do, but at the end of the day the buck stops with them.”
