World Bank Fraud Posted on Sat, May 03, 2014 08:08:53

Dear Sirs

I would like to submit a formal complaint of failure by the World Bank (WB) to investigate my allegations of fraud and theft on two WB Projects, which I worked on, ie the Chad/Cameroon Pipeline Project (CCPP)and the Philippines PLDT Telephone Project. based on the recent television interview with the former WB auditor, Mrs Karen A Hudge, who in essence has reported widespread fraud and theft of Federal Funds on numerous WB Projects.

Based on this latest evidence from Karen A Hudge (KAR), I now ask the WB Fraud Investigations Team to revisit my allegations between 2001 and 2014.

In essence, KAR claims that millions of dollars of WB funds are being stolen by corrupt government officials world wide and covered up by senior WB managers. Such statements and allegations have been made by me over a 13 year period and in particular CCPP and the Philippine PLDT Projects.

As you are aware, WB Funds were diverted from the CCP to purchase arms by the President of Chad. You are also aware the CCP has been operating in a legal void since 2003 and oil revenues are still being diverted from the main aim of the CCP project load ,i.e to eradicate poverty.

I have had first hand knowledge of such fraud on both projects where I worked in a supervisory role, and have reported to your Anti Fraud officers. There is clear evidence that the WB oversight Senior Management including the last two Presidents have turned a blind eye to such fraud and theft of federal funds.

For your information, action and files.

I look forward to hearing from you.

With thanks

Yours sincerely

Alan M Dransfield

Dear Mr Bradshaw

Please see the 10 minute video of Karen A Hudge the former World Bank accountant and recent whistleblower.

This lady is, in essence, supporting my claims of fiscal irregularities at the WB over recent years.

I recommend you should watch this video which she claims the WB have consistently covered up serious fraud and theft of public funds and I call upon my MP to give support to Karen A Hudge’s efforts to expose multi million dollar fraud at the WB.

With thanks
