The Party said the statement from the office of the DPP underlines the fact that the investigations are continuing and that there are four suspected breaches of the criminal laws and procedural violations in relation to the former Minister and his operatives.
The PNP in a media release today, is expressing hope that the Financial Investigations Division (FID) will collect all statements where possible to fill any gaps so that the appropriate action can be taken.
It is critical too, the PNP said, that the investigations take into account the documents, which it is reported, were destroyed at the Education Ministry at the time when Minister Reid was fired.
The PNP is also encouraging the Public Administration and Appropriations Committee (PAAC) to continue to exercise its jurisdiction in furtherance of unearthing any remaining breaches in this sordid affair.
The Party said crime and corruption are at the heart of the under development of Jamaica and every effort must be made to frontally address these issues and bring to book those who remain intent on practicing these ills.
