Holness Orders Investigation Into Distribution of TEF Funds

Prime Minister Andrew Holness says he has directed Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett to ensure that a thorough investigation is carried out into the distribution of funds from the Tourism Enhancement Fund, TEF, by the former PNP Administration.

Mr. Holness told Parliament this afternoon that information has been passed on to him which have raised preliminary concerns regarding disbursements made from the TEF last year.

On the weekend, the Opposition PNP accused the Government of partisan distribution of funds from the Tourism Product Development Company, TPDCO for labour day activities.

The Prime Minister told the House of Representatives this afternoon that he’ll not tolerate partisan distribution of state resources.
