Against two former directors of a foundation that raises money for research into childhood cancer, today demanded up to 3.5 years in prison. The board members are suspected of embezzlement and forgery.
The main suspect, a 43-year-old man from Scherpenzeel, would take money from the Foundation Quality of Life, used partly to pay the mortgage, remodeling and furnishing of his house. In total there would be fraud for about six tons.
Against a co-defendant has been demanded by the public prosecutor at the Amsterdam District Court for complicity in the embezzlement of 240 hours community service and a suspended sentence of three months.
The former boss of the man from Scherpenzeel did in 2011 tax return because there are several invoices were falsified. The case therefore came rolling because the false invoices were to declare unjustified cost of dinners, nights in a luxury hotel and the cost of purchasing a mobile phone. He had also made two false income declarations in order to get a mortgage.
The prosecutor had extensively discussed the fact that there is money for a good cause is obscured. ,, People trust their money to a charitable organization because they want to help others, because they think that way reaches their money in the right place.
This confidence is crucial, literally vital. Without trust there is a clear no money and without money no investigation. ''
