Two employees of the Defence Ejendomsstyrelse is arrested for fraud. It reminds me of Britta's case, believes the professor.
It suggests that the case of possible fraud in the Defence Ejendomsstyrelse is "relatively serious", although it is not yet known how much that could potentially have been done for.
It assesses the Per Nikolaj Bukh, professor of financial management at Aalborg University.
- You have only taken some samples in a single year, and it can go back for many years. And so it may prove, that it is much more comprehensive than we think, he says.

The two employees is, according to Ritzaus information has been arrested. They are suspected to have used the loopholes in the system.
the Study from the Office of the auditor general has revealed that the employees could carry out fictitious purchases on behalf of Defence Ejendomsstyrelse.

Despite Britta's case, the case of fraud with the withholding tax and now the case in the Defence Ejendomsstyrelse calls on the professor to turn the cold water in the blood.
