From cbc.ca 15 Mar 2011 [hat-tip Nemesis] – “Criminal charges have been laid following a year-long investigation of a former Surrey city planner. Akonyu Akolo is facing charges of breach of trust, secret commissions and fraudulent concealment, Surrey RCMP said Tuesday. The allegations involve several thousand dollars.
The charges relate to a development application, but there was no allegation or finding of wrongdoing on the part of the applicant, police said.
The City of Surrey has also filed a civil suit against Akolo, alleging he used misappropriated city funds to buy a home in Delta. [From 8 Mar 2011 article: “The city alleges Akolo used the city’s money in the purchase of a house on Chateau Wynd in Delta with an assessed value of $624,000.”]
None of the charges against Akolo have been proved in court.”
From the video: “His house is in a quiet upscale neighbourhood, and the city alleges he may have defrauded the city of enough money to pay for it”.
