Embezzlement Accusation Against SAG P&H Plans

Craig E. Simmons, the former human resources director for the Screen Actors Guild-Producers Pension and Health Plans, has filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Labor Requesting an investigation into alleged embezzlement at the plans. The story was first reported at TheWrap.com. According to the website, Simmons claimed that he was instructed by pension-and-health CEO Bruce Dow "not to discuss an alleged embezzlement scheme by former chief information officer Nader Karimi and to lie to authorities about other questionable financial activity."

Copies of Simmons' letters to the Department of Labor and the pension-and-health trustees are available to view at TheWrap.com. The website reports that the alleged embezzlement "resulted in losses between $5 and $10 million." Karimi's lawyer told the website that his client is not guilty of any wrongdoing, and a lawyer for the plans told the website that the charges are "without merit."
