HC Deb 26 March 1990 vol 170 c19W
Mr. Cryer

To ask the Attorney-General what discussions he has had on the public relations representation in the United Kingdom for Bophuthatswana; and if he will make a statement.

The Attorney-General

An allegation made in April 1986 on behalf of the Government of Bophuthatswana that funds had been misappropriated from a bank account belonging to the Bophuthatswana National Commercial Corporation Limited was referred to the metropolitan and city fraud squad. Following a police investigation, the Director of the Serious Fraud Office concluded in April 1988 that insufficient evidence was available to justify the institution of proceedings against any person. I had no discussion on the matter but was notified of that decision.

Forward to
