Fighting Back

In December 2020, former Mayor Joe Anderson was arrested as part of Operation Aloft, a long-running investigation into the sale of land and building contracts relating to Liverpool City Council. Joe vehemently denies all allegations and is fighting to clear his name.

The Government conducted its Best Value inspection into Liverpool City Council, which the Housing Secretary delivered in the House of Commons in March 2021.

I’ve remained silent, but now the mayoral and local elections are over, I feel the time is right to tell my side of the story. I intend to fight to clear my name.
