The defence agency has lied to The auditor general in the big bestikkelsessag

Five persons are charged with a large case on bribery, corruption and procurement at the Defence Ejendomsstyrelse.

the public accounts committee says its sharpest criticism in the case of possible millionsvindel with procurement in the Defence, which was known to the public on Thursday.

According to the police charge trades the case of an amount of 1.8 million dollars, where five persons are accused of corruption and gross breach of mandate.

- It is shocking here. I have never been out for something like that. I have been statsrevisor in 20 years, and I have never seen anything like it. It is appalling, and, therefore, we have also stated a very sharp criticism, says president Henrik Thorup (DF).

The economic watchdogs will find it "totally unacceptable" that the department of defense Ejendomsstyrelse has given The auditor general, incomplete and inaccurate information.

the public accounts committee concludes that there is a high risk that mistakes and crimes against property, when Properties are making purchases, without the ministry of Defence subsequently can detect it, reads it.

concretely, the trades case of possible fraud for millions of dollars in connection with the purchase.

As the example used the department of defense Ejendomsstyrelse 291 million in december 2018, which is over half of the budget for the entire year. The purpose could have been to empty the account, so the money is not transferred to the next year.

The auditor general has only examined purchases in 2018, so the problem can be greater than at present.

- There have been cases where you have placed some orders. It has been observed that the tasks one has paid the bills for, not at all is performed.

- You have asked for evidence, because the time interval is unusual. The pictures were away, and so they made some new pictures, as The auditor general does not look is from december of last year, but from august of this year, says Henrik Thorup.
