Vincent McKee Charged with 33 counts of Fraud

A former Lib Dem candidate for Parliament has been charged with fraud following a Sky News investigation.

Dr Vincent McKee is due to appear before Coventry Magistrates on Thursday 29 September facing 33 counts of fraud dating back to October 2009.

Dr McKee was the director of a national tutorial agency.

He was also a parliamentary candidate for the Liberal Democrats in three elections. Some of the charges date back to when he was running his campaign for a seat in the House of Commons.

The charges come after Sky News carried out a sting investigation into Dr McKee’s business activities as a tutor and education consultant and this led to a Trading Standards investigation which has now resulted in these charges having been brought against the former Lib Dem candidate. .

As well as fraud, Dr McKee is also charged with unfair trading and perverting the course of justice.
