Villainess Is Changing Her Role To A BroCon - Chapter 160
The paperwork examination still continued, as there was even more to go on.
Many disaster relief money and reconstruction funds that the dukedom should have given to the territory’s residents have been embezzled. Even in the vast Yurinova territory, landslides and flash floods occur every year, perhaps due to deforestation. There were also some mine cave-ins.
A dismal list.
But how many lives were destroyed by the embezzlement of the money mentioned here? How many lives could we have helped rebuild after the disaster had been shattered instead due to the embezzlement?
“Ekaterina, that’s enough. You don’t have to look at it anymore. I’m sorry. I should have thought about how much it would hurt you to see this, my gentle sister. Forgive me.”
“No, I’m fine. I’m willing to carry the same burden as big brother.”
Alexei nodded to his sister, who clutched the list with tears in her eyes and a worried expression on her face.
“Okay…However, as for the disaster relief money on the list, we have been able to provide some of it through a separate fund. Around the third year, when I inspected the disaster sites, I noticed there were too many times that the relief money that we should have provided did not reach the people of the territory. Old Forli and Great-Uncle Isaac also noticed the anomaly, and we all did what we could to deal with the situation. Only after I inherited the title, I realized the embezzlement was on such a large scale.”
“Oh, really? As expected of big brother.”
Visiting a disaster site…if it was three years ago, was he only thirteen at that time? At such an age, was big brother visiting dangerous places by himself? Did this aristocratic big brother walk through the disaster area on his own feet, covered in mud?
Go drink the nail polish of big brother, you bastard father!
And it must have been complicated to deal with the situation with no financial authority. How stressful it must have been for everyone.
“Even before you inherited the title, you were fulfilling the duties of a lord, weren’t you? That is truly admirable.”
I wonder what would have happened to the Yurinova territory if big brother had not been such a cheat-level excellent lord.
The GDP of Yurinova’s territory was probably not more than a few hundred million. However, divulging the mismanagement of such a huge budget could have caused a lot of things to happen, including a deterioration of public order due to the growing discontent of the people.
The list of embezzlement that had gone on for seven years finally came to an end. Ekaterina felt her skin crawl when she saw the cumulative amount listed on the last page.
Converted into Japanese yen–about 30 billion.
Wait a minute. What is this?
Who spent this amount of money and for what⁉︎ No, it was definitely done by the old hag. But she embezzled for extravagance? She spent it all right upfront. Still, it should not have reached this obscene amount.
Come to think of it; I think there was a gambling addict CEO who withdrew 10 billion from his own company in a previous life. Our Father seemed to spend all his time playing with women and gambling, but he was again too unconcerned about wasting money over here to embezzle it. He automatically charged the duke’s estate for all betting losses, and he never paid any of his own bills.
The other thing….for the last seven years, the only possible destination for huge sums of money to flow….
An entity that would spend huge sums of money.
As I vaguely recall, the French Revolution. It was said that Queen Marie Antoinette’s extravagance had caused France’s financial crisis, but in fact, the cause of the financial difficulties was military spending. Speaking of money-eating locusts, the military was the main culprit.
Yurimagna, with its Grand Knights, was in financial difficulties.
