(2010) New Labour Cllr. John Holden -CHARGED WITH BENEFIT FRAUD

A Highland councillor has been charged following an investigation into alleged benefit fraud.

John Holden, who represents the Inverness South ward, was investigated by police, Highland Council and the Department of Work and Pensions in 2008.

The Crown Office confirmed Mr Holden has been charged, but declined to give any further details.

The case against him is due to call at Inverness Sheriff Court next month.

Mr Holden has said he would rigorously defend the case.

The Labour councillor has been suspended from the party’s group on the council.

A Scottish Labour spokesman added: “As a police investigation is ongoing it would be inappropriate to comment further.”
