JAMAICA | PNP Wants Integrity Commission and MOCA to Investigate Impropriety at CAP

KINGSTON, Jamaica: The Opposition PNP is calling for an independent investigation into Clarendon Alumina Production (CAP). The Opposition says the Integrity Commission and the Major Organised Crime & Anti-Corruption Agency (MOCA) must launch an investigation into the matter and immediately sequester all files, computers and mobile phones of the chief operators to ensure that the investigation is not thwarted by persons who remain in place.

The continued flow of corruption information from CAP is indicative of widespread malfeasance, particularly as it relates to procurement, contract administration and the fiduciary responsibility of the Board of Directors.

The Opposition agrees with the dissolution of the board but says -- that alone is insufficient to address the breach of duty and misuse of public funds by the board and management which was supervised by portfolio Minister Robert Montague.

The Opposition Spokesperson on Energy and Mining, Mr Phillip Paulwell says, “Urgent steps must be taken to terminate the existing management team and replace it with professional management who will protect Jamaica's best in this vital industry.”

The Opposition says the Prime Minister has a duty of care to the Jamaican people in the protection of their taxes, revenues and assets, and he cannot fail to act! 

The Opposition Spokesman will table a number of questions in tomorrow’s sitting of the House of Representatives, as the Opposition is determined to ensure accountability and transparency.
