communications agency denies having made the DF-campaign for 375.000 dollars, otherwise stated in the invoice.
A false invoice on the 375.000 dollars addressed to, among others, the Danish people's party Morten Messerschmidt is a part of the Bagmandspolitiets (Søik) investigation of possible fraud with EU funds.
