Local Minister Robert Troy says white collar crime can have serious consequences

A new organisation will come in to effect today, aimed at boosting the State's ability to tackle white collar crime.

The Corporate Enforcement Agency's replacing the Office of the Director of Corporate Enforcement in investigating allegations of wrongdoing by companies.

There'll be a doubling of the Garda presence in the agency, while funding's also being boosted by almost 30 percent.
