Irish hemp firm Celtic Wind Crops has taken its former CEO to Ireland’s High Court, alleging improprieties it says have crippled the company financially.
Celtic Wind, which sells health food supplements and fiber based products, was granted a temporary injunction against Joseph Gavin, who was fired by the company in late March, the Irish Times reported.
The company claims Gavin transferred money to an unknown account from a Celtic Wind account held with UK-based e-commerce company Skrill Ltd. The court filing claims Gavin failed to return the money as requested by the company, and furthermore that it has had difficulties accounting for some items from the company’s stock since Gavin was fired.
Celtic Wind also alleged in court papers that Gavin continues identify himself as the company’s chief executive, and noted it has had problems accessing many of the company’s electronic systems, which Gavin set up.
Celtic Wind Crops started business in 2012. The company, sells CBD oil and natural health food products to retailers in Ireland, and is an exporter.
