SFO confirms investigation into individuals at Auckland Transport
The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) today confirmed that an investigation into individuals related to Auckland Transport was commenced last month.
The investigation is being conducted under Part II of the Serious Fraud Office Act, meaning the Director had reasonable grounds to believe that an offence involving serious or complex fraud may have been committed.
The investigation relates to alleged irregularities in the procurement of services and as a result search warrants were executed at multiple locations yesterday.
Acting Chief Executive for SFO, Simon McArley, said the matter had been referred to them by Auckland Transport following an internal investigation.
He added that no further comment will be made as this early stage.
