Ex head of finance at Enfield Council accused of fraud

A FORMER head of finance at Enfield Council has been accused of stealing nearly £500,000 of taxpayers money.

John Jossa, 58, appeared at City of London Magistrates on Tuesday charged with fraud by false representation and obtaining property by deception.

He retired from his role as head of finance at the council in 2009, but is alleged to have stolen the money between 2007 and 2010. 

The council, in a statement, said: “We expect the full force of the law to be directed at anyone found guilty of defrauding council taxpayers of money.

My comment: So much for council scrutiny between 2007 and 2010. Still it's only taxpayer's money so why should they be worried.
