IRELAND: FEARED €7.5 MILLION FRAUD DURING PURCHASE OF 350 VENTILATORS

On 7 May, the Irish Times reported that the health services feared it was about to fall victim to fraud during a €7.5 million purchase of 350 ventilators from a company in the Far East, and made a complaint to the Garda, according to a report to the Policing Authority.  It is said that the payment has not been transferred and the investigation remains ongoing. The Irish-based company that was acting as an agent in the transaction has now begun a breach of contract case against the health services in the High Court after it discontinued its planned purchase of the ventilators.
