CTOC Moves to Dismiss Media Report of Charges Laid in Corruption Probe

Acting-Head of the Counter-Terrorism and Organized Crime Investigation Branch of the Constabulary (CTOC) Superintendent, Anthony McLaughlin, says a report in the Gleaner newspaper on Thursday that the Police have charged a woman in connection with its probe into alleged improprieties at the Education Ministry is false.

The Gleaner reported this morning that law-enforcement sources say the woman was detained in Liguanea on March 8 and formally charged by investigators at C-TOC.

The newspaper said the woman is scheduled to appear in court tomorrow. But Superintendent McLaughlin told our news center today that the report is not factual. He says no one is in custody in connection with the probe.

The acting C-TOC Head declined to comment further on the investigation, which he says is at a preliminary stage.
