Number of addresses searched as part of Tarian investigation into complaint made by Swansea University

OFFICERS from Tarian, the Regional Organised Crime Unit (ROCU) for southern Wales, have this morning executed a number of warrants as part of investigation into alleged bribery offences. 

Seven addresses in Swansea, Carmarthenshire, and Kent are being searched with the assistance of colleagues from South Wales, Dyfed Powys and Kent Police forces.

The enforcement action was carried out in relation to a complaint made by Swansea University to the Serious Fraud Office in late 2018, which was subsequently referred to police.

No arrests have been made during the searches, however a number of documents and electronic equipment have been seized.

The investigation is complex and remains ongoing.

An eighth address has now also been searched as part of the investigation.

Of the premises searched, four were in the South Wales Police force area, three in Dyfed Powys and one in Kent.

This remains a complex investigation.
