Former US President, Donald Trump’s company top executive has been charged with tax fraud.

The finance chief, Allen Weisselberg has been charged with tax-related crimes and turned himself in to New York authorities on Thursday.

Allen Weisselberg, 73 was charged with concealing $1.7m (£1.2m) worth of income.

The Prosecutors said the 15-year-long scheme helped executives evade taxes by giving benefits, such as rent and school fees that were hidden from the authorities.

Lawyers for the firm and Weisselberg have pleaded not guilty to the crime.
