The trial of Nova Scotia politician Trevor Zinck, charged in the province's constituency allowance spending scandal continues today in Halifax. Zinck who is an Independent member of the legislature, faces charges of theft over $5,000, fraud over $5,000 and breach of trust.
After an investigation was opened into constituency allowance spending by the Auditor General, Zinck was one of four politicians charged. Last week, the court heard a bureaucrat in province's Finance Department testify that rules concerning expense claims are unclear.
However, Zinck has already admitted in an agreed statement of facts that the Office of the Speaker reimbursed him for $10,000 in expense claims in 2008 and 2009 even though he did not pay those listed in his claims.
