A further investigation into ICEIDAs fincancial matters in Mozambique was then carried out and the Icelandic National Audit Office notified. In consultation with the National Audit Office, all ICEIDA´s financial accounts in Mozambique from 2006 were sent to Iceland and the matter sent to the Economic Crime Department of the National Commissioner of the Icelandic Police. They will investigate the matter further with the help of the Icelandic National Audit Office.
