Firm administrator swindles $400,000

A Christchurch firm administrator has appeared in court, allegedly swindling hundreds of thousands of dollars from the firm.

A Christchurch law firm administrator has allegedly syphoned around $400,000 from the employer over a 10-year-period.

She was remanded on bail without plea to November 3 and ordered to surrender her passport, according to a Stuff.co.nz report.

Appearing before Judge Tony Couch in the Christchurch District Court yesterday on two charges of theft, the woman, who managed the firm’s payroll and human resources, was granted interim suppression of both the name and firm she worked for.

The stolen money reportedly did not relate to the firm’s trust account or client funds.
