Outline of the case.

However no invoice or supporting documents were offered. You received a memorandum instructing you to make the payment and confirmation that the transaction was to pay for legitimate expenses. You conclude that as you are an employee you cannot refuse in the absence of evidence that you are being asked to commit a crime or other irregularity.

Shortly after challenging the director you are informed your interim role could not continue due to financial difficulties. An Insolvency Practitioner who has been appointed as administrator has contacted you. He is seeking details from you.
