FINANCIAL IRREGULARITY UNDER INVESTIGATION

The Department of Corrections and Public Safety has referred a case involving financial irregularities with an inmate trust fund to police for investigation.

One employee has been dismissed after financial irregularities were identified. The amount under investigation is over $1,000, but could be as high as $18,500.

The dismissal follows an internal investigation after a manager identified concerns just last week.

The Provincial Comptroller and the Provincial Auditor's offices have been notified. The Comptroller continues to work with Corrections and Public Safety to ensure proper procedures are in place across the department.

Specific details will not be released because the matter is under investigation by police.

NOTE TO EDITORS: Corrections and Public Safety Minister Kevin Yates will be available for a scrum today, Thursday July 27th, at 10:00 a.m. outside his office, Room 30, Legislative Building, Regina.
