Durai begins serving sentence

Posted by jtsmyth8 on June 11, 2008

T.T. Durai went to jail on Tuesday, but it was not the end of his troubles that stemmed from his leadership of the National Kidney Foundation.

He is to serve three months in jail for using a fake invoice to deceive the charity into paying $20,000 to an interior designer friend. He may have a month shaved off the jail term for ‘good behaviour’.

The 59-year old still has an outstanding charge to answer: of using a false invoice to approve a $5,000 payment to an advertising company. A court conference will be held next month.

He was cheery before media photographers when he appeared at the Subordinate Courts to turn himself in on Tuesday morning.

But it was a solemn and pensive Durai who left his Fort Road bungalow earlier in a champagne-coloured Honda Civic. (story)
