Two former employees have been charged with defrauding an Auckland-based charity that provided dometic violence prevention services. Sio, who was the charity's chief executive, faces four charges of dishonesty using a document, the Serious Fraud Office said. It began operating as a registered charity in June 2008 and by June 2014, the organisation received government funding of about $2.5 million per annum, the Serious Fraud Office said. The charity offered support services including addressing family violence, education around family violence and domestic violence prevention programmes for men. The women were remanded on bail and were due to reappear in court on October 30, the Serious Fraud Office said.
