Auditor General’s report fleecing by public figures

There are many stories that can be told from the auditor general’s report for 2010-2011. There were cases of suspected fraud, including one under investigation at the Toledo District Education Centre.  In one transaction, original receipts totaling sixty-four thousand, three hundred and five dollars and twenty five cents did not match the corresponding duplicate copies. It was found that the names of the buyers and the amounts paid, differed between the receipt books and the original receipts issued and signed by the clerk.  Specifically, the audit revealed that receipts totaling two thousand, five hundred ninety-four dollars and forty cents were not brought to account in cashbook for the period of September fifteenth to twenty-sixth 2005. This implies that the money paid by the buyers was not deposited to the Sub-Treasury, representing a direct loss to the government. It was also revealed that three receipts, totaling two hundred sixty-two dollars and eleven cents, which appeared to be signed by the officer, did not come from an official Revenue Collector Receipt book.  The receipt book used by the clerk came from a regular store.  We’ll have more from the Auditor General’s report in future newscasts.

    Why does GOB use cash at all? Why does it entrust tax money to thieves, and never punish them when they steal?

    All I can say is jail, jail, jail. I want to hear what the PM is going to say about the rape of the country. The entire country is a victim of this corruption that has taken over every part of this government . Has the PM suddenly come down with whooping cough or laryngitis why he is not speaking out on this government that is crumbling down around him. I believe there is yet bigger earthquakes of wrong doing to come and the guilty parties are shaking in their boots, bring it on channel 5.

    We need a mandatory “question time” in the National Assembly, where the PM must stand in the dock and answer any asnd all questions posed to him. Nothing could be more educational for our country than to see this PM forced to stand and answer the questions we all have. They do it in England, it’s good enough for us here.
