Trial Date Set For Fraud Accused
A trial date was set today for a Cape Breton family accused of tax fraud.
Lydia Saker from Sydney Mines and her three daughters, Georgette Young, Angela MacDonald, and Nadia Saker, are accused of defrauding the federal government of $3.6 million over a five-year period.
They said last month they plan to represent themselves and be tried by judge alone and a 24-day trial is now set to begin on May 17th.
The Canada Revenue Agency says the women reported tens of millions of dollars in sales from their 10 companies that never happened.
They’re facing a total of 30 counts of fraud.
The four are continuing their release on conditions until their trial.
