The former head of finance at the now defunct homelessness charity Cyrenians Cymru will appear in court next week on fraud charges.

Robert Mark Davies, 49, has been charged with fraud by abuse of position and will appear at Cardiff Magistrates’ Court on 21 February.

Davies was the head of finance at Cyrenians Cymru until his dismissal in 2014. He was arrested in 2014 after an investigation by the South Wales Police economic crime unit.

A statement from the court today said the alleged fraud was worth £1,343,074.

Cyrenians Cymru went into administration in 2015.

The charity, which had an income of £2.2m in the year to the end of March 2013, employed 75 staff.
