British anti-fraud investigator says he was “fired for being white and probing crimes by Asians”
A British anti-fraud investigator claims that he was fired by London’s Tower Hamlets council because he’s white and the subjects of his recent investigation were ‘Asians’.
Mark Edmunds, 55, is now seeking damages of £529,000 for racial and sexual discrimination against the London’s Tower Hamlets council – an organization long-plagued by scandals and allegations of corruption, the Daily Mail reports.
Edmunds had originally joined the council back in January of 2010, and was a member of the unit in charge of the hosting the London Olympics before he transferred to an anti-fraud investigations unit.
