Another Wayne County official indicted

(WXYZ) - One of Robert Ficano’s appointees has been indicted.

Zayd Allebban was previously charged in a criminal complaint. Now a federal grand jury has formally indicted Allebban for obstruction of justice, and they’ve added three new charges of falsifying documents.

Federal prosecutors allege the county’s Director of Enterprise Application falsified the documents to hide a bribery scheme that involved Allebban’s supervisor in the IT department, Tahir Kazmi. The two are also friends.

Last week, Kazmi pleaded guilty to accepting bribes, and as part of his plea deal, Kazmi will be cooperating and testifying as part of the FBI’s probe in Wayne County government.

The indictment alleges that Allebban conspired with Kazmi to obstruct justice when they tried to get a private contractor to lie to FBI agents.

1. Not much of a shocker

Wayne County, like Detroit, is being run into the ground by corrupt assholes. I will be moving to Downtown Detroit in September. I will really need to do my homework on who to support. Everyone in office there has a "D" behind their names but not many of them are worth a damn thing.
