Osita Mba the solicitor at HM Revenue and Customs who has blown the whistle on dodgy tax deals at HMRC is now being persecuted by HMRC. His ‘crime’ to tell a parliamentary committee of the dodgy goings on at HMRC.
He has been told not to enter the Revenue’s building in Westminster without a personal escort from his line manager.
This is disgraceful treatment of a decent man who has exposed wrongdoing within HMRC.
A petition has been set up in support of Osita Mba and all future whistleblowers. Please support and sign.
The man who should be driven out of HMRC is Dodgy Dave Hartnett, the most wined and dined civil servant, the tax dodgers friend.
Be careful what you wish for. As a write I learn he is to be ‘retired’!
Why is it that corrupt and incompetent what are jokingly called public servants are nearly always retired, rarely fired and almost unknown to be prosecuted and thrown into prison?
For Dodgy Dave Hartnett, retirement on a fat penison, nice little earners from dodgy tax dodgers as a thank you is totally unacceptable, his retirement must be behind bars stripped of all pension rights.
He does not go until the summer of next year. No, he must go now, a nice Christmas present for hard working HMRC straff and ordinary tax payers on PAYE who pay their taxes.
Osita Mba is not the only rebel within HMRC.
Calling themselves Dissent, a rebel group of 324 tax office staff with members in every ofice have set up a whistleblowing network to expose what they see as ‘corruption, ineptitude and mismanagement’.
Morale is at rock bottom within HMRC with only 17% of staff having confidence in senior management.
Were HMRC to tackle the tax dodgers there would be no need for public sector cuts.
