PNP Officially Writes to Attorney General Requesting RADA Audit


The People’s National Party, PNP, says it has officially written to the Auditor General, to request a full financial investigation of the Farm Roads Rehabilitation Programme undertaken by the Rural Agricultural Development Authority, RADA, during the financial years 2017/18 and 2018/19.

The PNP says it also intends to write to the Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency, MOCA, to undertake criminal investigations.

This was confirmed by PNP General Secretary, Julian Robinson in a statement today.

According to Mr. Robinson, the letter follows through on a commitment given yesterday to ask Auditor General, Pamela Monroe Ellis, to examine expenditure on a bushing programme in St. Thomas.

The PNP reportedly pointed the Auditor General to documents it says it has that contradicts statements given by Chairman of RADA, yesterday.

Mr. Robinson says a statement from RADA yesterday forms part of a pattern of deflection and misrepresentation consistent with issues surrounding Petrojam, NESoL and the Caribbean Maritime University.
