A major city with a £1.8 billion budget, fraud within Sheffield has affected both national and European funding streams.
Yesterday’s UK Column Live investigated allegations of institutional and financial corruption within Sheffield City Council that has swallowed £millions of public money and defrauded ordinary taxpayers.
OLAF, the European Fraud Office, not only failed to tackle financial abuses, but also assisted in the cover-up.
It was alleged Sheffield Chief Executive Bob Kerslake, now head of the Civil Service, assisted this dirty process.
Not only has the Audit Commission failed to clean up the city, they have acted with a common purpose to protect the Council and key people – including implicated Common Purpose graduates.
Whistleblowers exposing the crimes report that they have been seriously harassed and threatened over many years to shut them up. One of these brave people agreed to speak out on UK Column live.
