Sacked Dep. Minister Slapped A $7k In Fraud Case

Former Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister Mukhtar Mahad Daud on Sunday was found not guilty of fraud fined $7000 for defying orders to report to the Auditor General's and for insulting and mistreating auditors who had visited his office. The court heard that Daud threw the sermon orders to a dustbin and insulted the auditors. Daud was sacked in August over alleged stealing public funds. Attorney Gen Ahmed Ali Dahir had accused Daud of “stealing public funds” and using office for personal interest, says there was 4-month long investigation into alleged corruption.
