A member of the board of Kildare Wicklow Education and Training Board has called on the former Chair and Vice Chair of that body to release legal advice.
It drew attention to lapses in controls over the procurement of capital projects and certain other expenses, as well as non-compliant procurement expenditure on goods and services.
The Public Accounts Committee held discussions on the 2015 accounts yesterday, and a Garda investigation is underway.
Sinn Fein Cllr., and General Election candidate, Réada Cronin, is a member of the KWETB board and of the sub committee that investigated a related legal bill.
She says legal advice was sought on behalf of the board when the C&AG submitted its initial queries.
She alleges that this information was "withheld" from the board.
Ex-Chair, Cllr. Brendan Weld, when contacted by Kfm, rejected Cllr. Cronin's statements as not reflective of the facts.
He says legal advice was sought, and was presented to the full board by relevant legal team.
Cllr. Cronin will be a guest on Monday's edition of Kildare Today with Clem Ryan, which will also detail Cllr. Weld's statement, in full.
