MARRIOTT: SN Names Top Officers For Questioning
The front page of today’s Scarborough News revisits the BEN MARRIOTT fraud and corruption allegations at Scarborough Borough Council – naming Chief Executive Jim DILLON, Director of Legal Services Lisa DIXON, Head of Human Resources Elaine BLADES and Council Leader Cllr Derek BASTIMAN [Con.] as persons whom external auditors MAZARS need to question in detail.
Councillor BASTIMAN’s lengthy pre-drafted statement makes no reference to the need for MAZARS to engage with Ben MARRIOTT – or the North Yorks Enquirer – though he and his Officers are aware that the Enquirer’s information precedes first publication back in August 2013.
The article also makes reference to the Private Eye coverage of the scandal, shown below.
