Three FNB employees investigated for fraud
MBABANE – Three employees of First National Bank (FNB) are being investigated by the police for allegedly defrauding the company of an undisclosed amount of money.
The employees, whose names are known to this publication, are alleged to have colluded with South African citizens in defrauding the bank.
The exact amount that the employees are alleged to have defrauded their employer could not be ascertained as police are still investigating. They are alleged to have started defrauding the bank in 2009 and the matter has since been handed over to the Fraud and Commercial Crimes Unit who are reportedly on the verge of concluding investigations.
FNB Corporate Manager Governance and Compliance, Hezekiel Nsibande confirmed the matter. He said they were currently conducting internal investigations, but was not in a position to disclose further details as the matter was now being handled by the police.
He said despite that the matter was being handled by the police, as a bank they conducted internal investigations to ascertain whether the name of the bank was not brought into disrepute.
Police Deputy Public Relations Officer, Assistant Superintendent Stephen Dlamini, confirmed that police are investigating the alleged fraud.
He said no one has been arrested.
