You've been part of a team working on a large and complex project. You have heard that a fairly major error has shown up as part of the financials for the project.
The colleague your manager is blaming is someone you do not particularly get along well with. You feel he is incompetent and you have a suspicion - which you cannot prove - that he has embezzeled funds from your company.
You feel that it would benefit your company for your colleague to be 'let go' and him being blamed for such a major error may - along with other factors - contribute to this happening.
