Denis MacShane to be suspended from the Commons for ONE YEAR after claiming expenses on 19 fake invoices

Former Europe Minister MacShane, MP for Rotherham, has been sensationally banned from the House of Commons for submitting false receipts for his trips abroad that were 'plainly intended to deceive' the parliamentary authorities. His career is in tatters after the Committee on Standards and Privileges said he submitted 19 fake invoices worth £12,900 and called for him to be suspended for 12 months, saying: 'This is so far from what would be acceptable in any walk of life that we recommend that [he] be suspended.'

Suspension for stealing? can't they Sack him? Why is he not being Charged with fraud?
