A senior member of staff at one of Ireland’s large retailers has been arrested after allegations by the company that he received corrupt payments.
The middle-aged man was arrested on Thursday at his home after being placed under investigation. An audit was conducted by the retailer and it took its suspicions to the Garda and reported them for investigation.
The company was concerned over the speed at which one of its trading partners, which was supplying services to it, had significantly increased the volume and monetary value of work it did for the retailer.
After carrying out an audit and taking its findings to the Garda the retailer made a formal statement of complaint alleging that the service provider had paid money to one of its employees in return for securing more work.
