FAS chief in fraud probe row

The head of FAS has rejected claims he tried to interfere with an audit into the misuse of funds at Ireland 's state training agency.

The head of FAS has rejected claims he tried
to interfere with an audit into the misuse of funds at Ireland’s state training
agency.

Rody Molloy defended his decision not to
inform John Hurley, Comptroller and Auditor General at Ireland’s public spending
watchdog, about the probe.

At the Dail committee hearing yesterday it
also emerged a second Garda

investigation has begun into the alleged
misuse of funds at FAS.

A senior executive at FAS, who is the subject
of a fraud probe, has been on

sick leave since June.

The committee heard how John Hurley was not
told about the internal inquiry, which took place between 2004 and 2006, until
last year.
