National Security Minister Dr. Horace Chang, says he expects that some individuals who’re implicated in the Integrity Commission report on Petrojam will be brought before the court in Jamaica.
The report was tabled in the House of Representatives on Tuesday.
Minister Chang also confirmed with our news centre that some individuals implicated in the report are being probed by the Major Organized Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency, MOCA.
Nationwide News understands that at least two former senior employees of Petrojam who’ve been implicated in the Integrity Commission report could be extradited to Jamaica.
One is a citizen of the United States and the other a permanent resident of that country.
The Integrity Commission concluded that several former senior employees of Petrojam conspired to defraud the entity.
The former employees were also accused of having breached Jamaica’s corruption prevention, forgery, larceny and perjury acts.
Minister Chang was asked whether having the implicated former Petrojam employees who are based overseas returned to Jamaica, may prove a challenge to law enforcement.
