£12k fine for Cable ‘hoax’
A MAN has been fined for falsely naming Lib Dem leader Vince Cable as director of a company.
Kevin Brewer, 65, was showing how easy it was to fool Companies House.
In 2013, he told the then Business Secretary: “We formed a company in your name without consent.”
Brewer, of Ullenhall, Warks, admitted false filing and was fined £1,602 by Redditch magistrates with £10,462 costs. Mr Cable called it “heavy-handed”.
