NHSGGC say they have no copy of Minutes of Corporate Governance meeting approving Lennoxtown sale to Celtic

FoI minutes of approval meeting missing

On the NHSGGC [NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde] website they have created a whole page of documents relating to the Lennoxtown sale to Celtic. And a quote from the main page reads (PCD means the Primary Care Division):

PCD meeting

Therefore the minutes of that CORPORATE GOVERNANCE meeting which would have proven there was oversight on the transaction including:

Who was at the meeting – did they have the authority?

Was there representation by the appropriate departments? Was there a quorum – enough persons attended?

Were there any dissenters?

Did it actually take place?

However no minutes exist in the NHSGGC specifically either in the Corporate Planning or Finance depts to prove Corporate Governance took place.

Here is a public body responsible to taxpayers for a major asset sale not providing an audit trail so how could auditors sign off on the transaction?

So we now have two disappearing documents. Firstly the GCC Westhorn Geotechnical report that never was. And now the minutes of the NHSGGC meeting to approve the Lennoxtown sale. Because as the NHSGGC site says, when Tom Divers, CEO, signed the agreement he was just concluding the transaction. The only NHS senior management oversight was at the previous Primary Care Division meeting which minutes are missing.

Scottish Mainstream Media scared to report on the EU State Aid case

The last time they reported on the EU case against Celtic FC was early in January 2014 when it was claimed that Lennoxtown was not under scrutiny and it would quickly be shut down. Well thanks to a VB FoI request it has been verified that the EU has expanded the case to include Lennoxtown.

VB NHS GG verification

So much for shutting down the EU State Aid case against Celtic FC. It’s expanding.

Must be interesting for the NHSGGC explaining to the EU Competition Commissioner how the key paperwork is missing.

  1. If it looks like corruption and smells of corruption it is. There will certainly be a police investigation and the process should be that the EU Commission / Olaf will end up referring to the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service for review. However, nothing to stop our own complainants seeking a meeting with the Crown Office and lodging a complaint given that there is a likelihood that evidence may be destroyed which is of course a criminal wrong per an attempt to pervert the course of justice. State Aid FC also have a duty to announce to the Stock Exchange they are subject to an investigation which will perhaps undermine their share price. They have a duty to disclose…

    Great work by all!

  4. would it be worth asking if they have corporate governance meeting minutes from the sale of other land they’ve previously sold ? If they do then looks like they’re trying to cover something up

  5. I think the people responsible for the missing paperwork will have a difficult balancing act on their hands. Do they keep stum, take their punishment (probably Jail, and a big fat Desmond / Lawell handshake) and see the case against their beloved club fold with a lack of necessary evidence and a wash of unprovable lies. Or do they come clean, blame BIG BROTHER, and the public get the proof of what even some Celtic supporters suspect has really been going on since Mein Fuhrer Lawell took charge.
    Does anyone know if a prosecution can still take place if the evidence has been tampered with / gone missing, with the likely suspects being the persons / bodies who are about to be prosecuted? Missing documents do make me nervous as Celtic seem to always slither past the muck throwing and come out the other side looking all innocent.
