Defense secretary speechless: Such was the fraud

Exclusive PH-lamps. Delicious as wine gifts. Hand-held vacuum cleaners. Fan heaters. Kitchen utensils and dishes.

the List is long of the postings, the revisoruddannede and straight forward Karsten Ravnsgaard clipped over in the accounting columns, when in a period in 2018 was employed as a bookkeeper in a west jutland electricity company.

the Transactions and the payments all came as one from the department of defense Ejendomsstyrelse, as all the time put more money into the customer account, the agency has in the electricity company. And got the delivered goods ordered from.

the Problem is, that the goods have probably not ended up for the benefit of the Defense.

But instead with two staff as intermediaries, apparently, to bl.a. individuals.

the newspaper Politiken and olfi.dk is among the media, who have read parts of a report from The auditor general about the scandal and lifted a corner of the veil of the methods.

the Report was published Friday in a press conference with the public accounts committee.

Two persons from the department of defense Ejendomsstyrelse is arrested and charged in the case, and the minister of defence Trine Team (S) has now sent a team to Hjørring in the attempt to get to the bottom of the scandal.

According to the audit report, the two employees in question ordered goods and services, even acknowledged receipt and at the same time approved the ex-post payment.

64 projects from the last year, has been reviewed. It turns out that there are errors in 54.

Trine Team says to olfi.dk:

"I'm speechless over the fact that it can possibly occur. It is also why I have taken the initiative to launch a major investigation."

"There is a task force, which is sent off to the uk continental shelf to investigate the conditions which must respond quickly back to me. At the same time running a criminal investigation," says Trine Team.

Several other politicians are horrified by the case and fears that the previous revelations are only the tip of the iceberg.

Bent Bøgsted, the Danish people's defense, says to TV 2.

"You get the idea: here Is a new 'Britta-case'? There has been the same, where there has not been control of the funds, where the money has disappeared, and what they have become used to?," he asks, rhetorically.
