BANK OF­FI­CIAL IN COURT OVER DEBIT OF €85,000

Gorey Guardian - - FRONT PAGE -

BANK of­fi­cial Lisa Red­mond (39) from Graigue­beg, Bun­clody, ap­peared be­fore the Dis­trict Court in Gorey last week on false ac­count­ing charges.

For­mal ev­i­dence of ar­rest, charge and cau­tion was pro­vided by De­tec­tive Garda Ian Hayes to Judge Ger­ard Haughton. The de­tec­tive ex­plained that Ms Red­mond was as­sis­tant man­ager of Per­ma­nent TSB in Gorey when the al­leged of­fences oc­curred in July 2015. What he de­scribed as ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties came to light dur­ing an au­dit at the bank.

Ms Red­mond was ac­cused of dis­hon­estly debiting €85,000 from the cash re­serve ac­count. Al­ter­na­tively, she was charged with fal­si­fy­ing a doc­u­ment in or­der to in­flate the fig­ure for the ATM cash re­serve held at the branch by €80,000 and in­flat­ing the pre­vi­ous day’s bal­ance by €5,000.

Judge Haughton re­marked that the amount of money ap­peared to be sub­stan­tial. The garda said it was al­leged that the de­fen­dant was re­spon­si­ble for a loss of €74,600 sus­tained by Per­ma­nent TSB.

The iden­tity of any per­son who might have ben­e­fited was un­known, said Garda Hayes.
