The Financial Investigation Division is now looking to proffer charges against former Stocks and Securities manager, Jean-Ann Panton pending questioning.

Panton is at the centre of the US multi-million dollar fraud at the entity.

According to the FID, they conducted searches alongside the Jamaica Constabulary Force’s Fraud Squad on two premises in the Corporate Area connected to Ms. Panton.

The searches took place Friday.

The search operations were done in the presence of Panton and her attorney.

This resulted in the seizure of documents and electronic devices including telephones; these will be thoroughly analysed in furtherance of the investigative process.

The FID says after this, Panton will be taken in for questioning to proffer charges.
