SOUTHPORT EURO-MP MAY ESCAPE REPAYMENT OF £500,000
Democrats are demanding an investigation into claims that disgraced
North West Euro-MP Den Dover has failed to pay back £500,000 of
The former Conservative MEP was expelled from the party for “gross
misconduct” by David Cameron after it was revealed that over seven
years he had paid staff expenses worth £758,000 to a company owned
by his wife and daughter. Concern is now being expressed that
the European Parliament may not be able to recover the money.
Dover is 1 of 9 MEPs who represent Southport and the whole of
England's North West region in Brussels.
Liberal Democrat Chris Davies blew the whistle on expense abuses
last year when he leaked details of a secret parliamentary auditor’s
report into the way in which some MEPs were misusing money intended
for the employment of staff. He is furious that no evidence
has been presented that the money has been repaid, and no indication
has been given by the parliamentary authorities that they intend to
curb Dover's salary or allowances. “If a member of the
public were to falsely claim social security payments they could
face a prison sentence. By contrast, a vast sum is involved in this
case yet the reaction seems to be one of great complacency.”
Now the MEP has written to the head of the European Parliament's
administration, Secretary-General Klause Welle, demanding to know
what action is being taken to recover all of the money.
Davies said:- “My questions are simple. I want to know what is
being done to get our money back and why Den Dover is still being
allowed to speak and vote in the Parliament? If the
parliamentary authorities are not doing it themselves, I want them
to give me any evidence so that I can place the matter in the hands
of the police in Britain.
I am proud of the work I do as an MEP, and I am sickened by the
greed of those whose actions drag down the reputation of everyone in
politics. The Parliament has to crack down firmly on abuses of this
kind and also has to be seen to do so."
