Alberta Health Services has fired a senior executive after his expense claims were made public.
Between January 2005 and August 2008, then CFO and executive vice-president of the former Capital Health Authority Allaudin Merali racked up nearly $ 350,000 in expenses.
Including a resturant tab for $1,600 and more than $2,000 to have a phone installed in his luxury Mercedes, both funded by Alberta tax payers.
The CBC first acquired the list of questionable claims through a freedom of information request.
Meanwhile, AHS now says it will make public, the paid expense accounts of its executives later this month.
