The city of Antwerp paid an amount of 3.4 million euros for this. Of this, 3.355 million euros in invoices would have already been approved and paid. Let’s Go Urban acted as client.
That inspection would now show that no irregularities have been found. Antwerp Alderman of Youth Jinnih Beels (sp.a) says in the newspapers that the investigation is still ongoing.
It was announced on Friday that the Central Office for Combating Corruption (CDBC) will take over the investigation into possible fraud from the federal judicial police in Antwerp and that Flanders is also investigating whether there are no wrongly obtained corona awards.
