The Integrity Commission has admitted that it got it wrong when it asserted that Port Maria’s Mayor, Richard Creary, was part of the panel which conducted the job interview for embattled former Petrojam General Manager, Floyd Grindley.
The admission from the commission that it erred is contained in a document referred to as a corrigendum which was tabled in the House of Representatives yesterday.
The commission noted that it’s own evidence shows that Mr Creary wasw not at the meeting.
The Commission says it concedes that Creary had been listed as unable to attend the meeting where Grindley was interviewed.
During a report which was tabled in the House last week, the Integrity Commission had suggested that Mr. Creary’s participation in the interview was evidence of a corrupt scheme where there was strategic placement of certain individuals at Petrojam in order to carry out questionable activities.
But Mr. Creary, who’s a Deputy General Secretary of the JLP, responded by issuing a statement to the media.
He strongly denied being part of the panel which interviewed Mr. Grindley.
Mr. Creary also denied any wrongdoing in the scandal which had engulfed the state owned oil refinery.
