Broxtowe leader Milan Radulovic on benefit fraud charge

Milan Radulovic Milan Radulovic was re-elected as leader of Broxtowe Borough Council in 2011

The leader of Broxtowe Borough Council has been charged with benefit fraud of more than £45,000.

Milan Radulovic, 56, of Cross Street, Eastwood, is accused of failing to declare council allowances on an incapacity benefit claim form.

The Labour councillor is due to appear in court on 16 March.

Mr Radulovic, of Cross Street, Eastwood was council leader from 1995 until 2007 - the same year he received an MBE - and resumed the position last year.

In 2005, he won a six-figure payout from the Queen's Medical Centre for suffering serious health problems after an operation.

The politician was left almost blind in one eye from keyhole surgery complications to remove a gallstone.

Medical staff went ahead with the procedure despite Mr Radulovic requesting open surgery.
