An Auckland District Health Board (ADHB) employee has been charged with theft of more than $220,000 from the organisation, Stuff reports. The woman employee is facing four charges of theft by a person in a special relationship, dating back to 2018. Mel Dooney, ADHB chief people officer, said the alleged fraud was discovered earlier this year. If proven, the employee, who no longer works at ADHB, can be sentenced to a maximum penalty of seven years imprisonment. She is expected to make an appearance at Auckland District Court later this month.
