Former OHA Employee Indicted For Embezzlement

(Salem, OR) -- A former Oregon Health Authority employee is being indicted for allegedly embezzling nearly one-and-a-half million dollars in a COVID-19 relief money. The Oregon Attorney General's Office says Marzieh Abedin was responsible for approving payments to vendors requesting money related to the COVID-19 vaccination process. She created a fake company and made payments to herself. OHA discovered the fraud and investigators were able to get almost all of the money back. Abedin faces 21 charges. The Department of Justice has requested a warrant for her arrest.
