An employee of Royal FloraHolland has been arrested for suspected embezzlement of €4.3m.
The NOS broadcaster reports that the man is thought to have taken the money during a nine-month period while working as a specialist in the financial department.
No other employees are thought to have been involved in the fraud, and the company told the NOS that it has taken measures to prevent further abuses and made an insurance claim against the theft.
