Nationwide News understands that the Office of the Contractor General, OCG, has widened its investigations into the awarding of contracts at the Hanover Parish Council.

Our news centre understands that some councilors and officers were interviewed by the Dirk Harrison led OCG last week.

The interviews follow a comment from the former Mayor of the Council, Shernet Haughton.

In an exclusive interview with Nationwide News last month, Ms Haughton suggested that she had information on council members that could force them to resign.

When we contacted the Secretary Manager of the Council, Judy McKenzie -Lawrence, for a comment she referred us to the OCG.

The OCG refused to confirm or deny that it had interviewed councillors and officers at the Council last week.

In an e-mail response to Nationwide News, the OCG said it would not comment on the matter at this time.
