Investigators at Private Investigator Edinburgh respond to recent report in Mail Online by Matt Chorley on 21 Jan 2013: Scotland Yard reopens probe into expenses of ex-labour MP Denis Macshane over claims he faked invoices

High profile cases such as investigations into suspected fraud like that of former MP Dennis Macshane have been a regular feature in the news.

According to Mail Online article Met Police will look again into former MP’s expense claims. 64 year old Denis Macshane was forced to quit his position in the Commons when Standards and Privileges Committee claimed he signed invoices worth £12,900 with a nom de plume.

However the case was dropped by Police in July last year as it was claimed that evidence was covered by parliamentary privilege and could not be used in court. Meanwhile Committee chairman Kevin Barron said that while the letters between Macshane and the commissioner were privileged, the fake invoices were not. Scotland Yard spokesman said:

‘We can confirm that following an assessment of the report published by the Standards and Privileges Committee and following liaison with the Crown Prosecution Service, the Metropolitan Police is reopening the investigation.’
