Two arrested over allegations of fraud at Irish broadcaster

Gardaí said that an investigation was ongoing.

TWO PEOPLE HAVE been arrested as part of an investigation into alleged fraud at a major Irish broadcaster. 

At least one of the people involved is believed to work at the broadcaster. 

It is believed that a significant amount of money was misplaced from the company over a number of years. 

The missing money was noticed when the employee was on leave, and management was informed. 

In a statement, gardaí confirmed that the investigation into the complaint made by a media organisation is ongoing. 

“Two people were arrested as part of the investigation. They have since been released without charge and a file will now be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions,” the statement said. 

“No further information is available. Investigations are ongoing.”

The company has been contacted for comment.
