Finance ministry looks into possible fraud at SNS property arm

Tuesday 22 January 2013

Special investigators from the finance ministry's fraud office are looking into 'possible criminal offences' with regard to property projects carried out by SNS Reaal's Property Finance unit.

Over the past few weeks, Fiod officials have interviewed a number of people involved in the projects and taken away documents, the Financieele Dagblad said.

A spokesman for SNS said the company was cooperating fully with the investigation 'because we think integrity is important'.

The public prosecution department has declined to comment.

Last month, the NRC reported that SNS Reaal had its doubts about some projects at its property arm and had asked forensic accounting specialists to examine 14 developments in detail.

Problems were identified at all 14 projects, ranging from suspected money laundering to bank staff negligence, the paper said.

Possible fraud? are you kidding us?

From government to corporate cartels to the little slave workers, fraud has been a part of human behavior for years & is here to stay..

'Most annoying is our systematic manner of punishing the little slave workers more than the bigger boys that seem to get just a slap on the wrist with an easily paid fine, while the slave workers stand to lose everything, house & family, bah! :P

Maybe our 'ministry of just us' can be trusted..?

More tax payers money wasted on bailing out private corrupt banks, and no dissent from the electorate, at all? Spineless, or dumbed down!
