Mund court case delayed

Akbal Mund is facing charges of failing to comply with the Income Tax Act

A court case involving Vernon’s mayor continues.

Akbal Mund’s lawyer appeared in court Thursday but the charges of failing to comply with the Income Tax Act have been put over until Dec. 17.

“My lawyer hasn’t heard back from the Canada Revenue Agency,” said Mund of the reason behind the delay.

The allegations are related to 2012 and 2013, and do not involve Mund’s personal taxes but a company that he used to pay himself a salary when he was a partner with Wendy’s.

Mund has previously stated that the charges are related to not filing proper paperwork, and that he did pay his taxes.
