Elliot Morley – In Court Today

Elliot Morley

Elliot Morley, the disgraced Ex-Labour MP for Scunthorpe, appears at Southwark Crown Court this afternoon.

He will appear before Mr Justice Saunders, scheduled for 16:00.

Morley, 58, faces two charges of false accounting in relation to the claims against his home in Winterton, near Scunthorpe, between 2004 and 2007.

Morley has been charged with claiming £16,800 on a phantom mortgage. He is also accused of pocketing £15,800 on mortgage claims, exaggerating the amount he was paying.

Elliot Morley, Jim Devine and David Chaytor had previously challenged the involvement of the courts, claiming Parliamentary privilege covered them. They rather unsurprisingly lost the argument and now with Devine and Chaytor safely tucked up in prison, Morley is the last of the trio to face justice!

More on this later.
