CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION red Rubber Stamp over a white background.
A handful of Folkestone & Hythe District Cllrs are under criminal investigation by Kent Police; for leaking the commercially sensitive information about how much the the Council will pay for Cozumel Estates Land – owned by the Reuben Brothers – at Otterpool Park.
We understand the Council lodged a formal compliant with Kent Police on or shortly after the 11th Jan 2020. As we understand, the investigation is underway.
It was Cllr David Monk (not under investigation) who first revealed the Council’s intention to buy out Cozumel Estates – owned by the Reuben Brothers – at full council on 20/11/2019. He did not though go into granular detail, as the Cllrs under investigation have.
It is not possible to say more at this stage. We stress all Cllrs under investigation are innocent until proven guilty.
