LIB DEMS FINED OVER BREXIT EXPENSES

THE PARTY WAS FINED 17,000 POUNDS FOR FAILING TO PROVIDE ACCEPTABLE INVOICES OR RECEIPTS AND 1,000 POUNDS BECAUSE SOME PAYMENTS WERE REPORTED IN AGGREGATE RATHER THAN AS INDIVIDUAL PAYMENTS.

 

Britain's Electoral Commission said on Tuesday it has fined the Liberal Democrats party 18,000 pounds ($24,069) for breaching campaign finance rules in the 2016 European Union referendum.

 

The party was fined 17,000 pounds for failing to provide acceptable invoices or receipts and 1,000 pounds because some payments were reported in aggregate rather than as individual payments, the commission said in a statement.
