Ex-MKO Grand Chief travel claims don't match cell phone records: audit

 


A federal probe into the spending of the former grand chief of a Manitoba organization representing some of the poorest First Nations in the country has found tens of thousands of dollars in questionable claims, according to numbers contained in draft portion of a report provided to APTN National News.

The financial probe of former grand chief David Harper and Manitoba Keewatinowi Okimakanak (MKO) was conducted by auditing firm KPMG under a contract with the federal Indigenous Affairs department.

The investigation was launched in September 2014 after the federal department received complaints over alleged spending irregularities by Harper and MKO. The department authorized KPMG auditors to review the organization’s books all the way back to 2010.
