    Default FÁS executive charged with €600k fraud

    This definitely needs a thread by itself.....

    A FÁS executive was charged today with 47 counts of defrauding the state training agency of more than €600,000.

    Mr James Brooke-Tyrell (aged 53), with an address at Church Gate, Church Road, Greystones, Co. Wicklow, was brought before Dublin District Court this morning.

    He was charged with 47 counts of deception by manufacturing a false tender, inducing FÁS while in his position as assistant video production manager, at Upper Baggot Street, D4, resulting in cheques being issued into accounts in the name of Yard Media, controlled by Mr Tyrell, from 2002 to 2008.

    I feel faint. actual accountability in a state body. it's a start, a late one but a start nonetheless.

    Accountability? In Ireland? Surely not??? This is indeed a break with a long-established and utterly shameful tradition. I wonder who he pissed off!

    let's not go nuts here:

    I presume that FAS have fired the internal auditors and finance staff that allowed this fraud to pass undetected for six years?

    How come an Assistant Manager is getting done and not a manager?? Surely someone higher up had to sign off on paperwork??
