A man has been charged with defrauding the first nations university of Canada.


RCMP say a 57 year-old man, formerly of Regina, faces one count of theft over five thousand dollars.


RCMP sargeant Carole Raymond says the charge was laid in relation to activities alleged to have taken place between 2003 to 2005.


It was back in 2005 that fsin vice-chief Morley Watson went on a now-famous housecleaning of the faculty.


One of the reasons he gave at the time was due to concerns over financial irregularities.


FNUC vice-president Al Ducharme acknowledges this latest development is a significant response to the large amount of criticism heaped on the school’s administration at the time.


The unnamed suspect is due in a Regina court-room on July 21st.
