Dodgy Councillor?

Perhaps another one, it's looking a bit dodgy?

"A Highland councillor is understood to be at the centre of an investigation into allegations of fraud. John Holden, who represents Inverness South, is a member of the council's ruling Labour administration. Police officers and staff from the Department for Work and Pensions and Highland Council benefits team searched a house in Inverness on Monday. Northern Constabulary said a man has been questioned in relation to the investigation. No-one has been charged."

Interestingly enough, in his current Register of Interests declaration, Councillor Holden lists "09/05/08: Recieved a gift of 2 bottles of Moet Chardon Champagne which was left at the back door by Skye Express with no note or details available of who sent them." Hmmmm.
