LibDem Donor to Appear in Court
Remember Michael Brown, the convicted fraudster who donated £2.4 million to the LibDems. According to the Evening Times he is due in court in September, just before the LibDem conference. It is now a matter for debate, now that his court date has been set and the police inquiry is presumably at an end, as to whether the Electoral Commission can now rule on whether this was an impermissible donation or not. Or they may still decide to wait until the case is over.
