Former U.K. foreign office minister Denis MacShane wants an investigation on allegations that British aid to Sierra Leone was being pocketed by senior government officials in the African nation, The Press Association reports.

“I request that the National Audit Office looks specifically at how Dfid money in Sierra Leone is spent, because an honourable member and other friends have just come back from there with the most alarming stories of diversion of Dfid aid into the pockets of ministers down there, and we really need to get Sierra Leone under full transparent audit,” PA quoted MacShane.
