Yet another publically-funded company promoting business, and with close ties to Waltham Forest Council, is accused of financial irregularities.
Belatedly, the Labour run Council has uncovered the fact that the E11 Bid had failed to disclose debts and found issues relating to the company’s governance.
Johar Khan, alias The Scarlet Pimpernel, was/is the Finance Director of the E11 Bid.
Khan should be comfortable in his new political home, after his successful appeal against not being approved as a local election candidate, as we are sure E11 Bids irregularities will be swept under the carpet like they have been for the Better Neighbourhood Initiative and WorkNet. Khan will join the illustrious group of Labour members who have, so far, eluded questions as to their roles in similar situations.
