So some conductor (woulnd’t ya know it? j/k) is in trouble for saying he bought instruments when he didn’t. Ya just can’t cheat the tax folks. Even in New Zealand, I guess.

Nelson Symphony Orchestra director David John Lindup is in custody after fraudulently claiming GST refunds worth $1.3 million for musical instruments he never bought.

This is rather costly publicity, but it did get me to look up the orchestra.
