04 MAY 3305
President Gibson Kincaid has been accused of receiving illegal campaign funding via the Bank of Zaonce.
Councillor Elijah Beck presented evidence to a special session of the Alliance Assembly:
“During September 3304, President Kincaid’s re-election campaign received several billion credits worth of undeclared funds. I have received data suggesting that these transactions were secretly arranged by a senior figure within the Bank of Zaonce.”
“Regrettably I cannot reveal the source of this evidence since it constitutes part of an ongoing investigation. However, I call upon the Assembly to open an official inquiry to establish if there was any violation of campaign finance law.”
Councillor Beck’s proposal was approved by a majority vote, after which Prime Minister Edmund Mahon authorised the inquiry to begin immediately.
As yet there has been no comment from President Kincaid.
