Member of Parliament for South St. Catherine, Fitz Jackson is raising concern over what appears to be a non-existent post at the Petrojam Ethanol Limited, PEL.
Mr. Jackson’s fears were confirmed when Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Energy, Carol Palmer, stated she was not aware of the position of Manager of Finance and Administration.
Mrs Palmer was speaking during yesterday’s sitting of Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee, PAC.
Mr. Jackson noted that despite the post being contrived it was not only filled but had a hefty emoluments package attached.
He questioned how a position can be invented without knowledge of the accountable Ministry or the Ministry of Finance. But. Mrs. Palmer was unable to explain and assured the PAC she would get to the bottom of it.
