The Office of the Department of Veteran’s Affairs Inspector General has confirmed that the Los Angeles Regional Office has been involved in negligent activity which resulted in the improper destruction of documents associated with Veterans’ claims for compensation. The alleged shredding of documents came to light from a tip-off received in January by the Office of the Inspector General. At this time it is unclear as to how many documents were shredded, however investigators immediately discovered at least nine documents related to Veterans’ claims for compensation in a refuse bin during their initial search.
