Executive Director of the National Solid Waste Management Authority, NSWMA, Audley Gordon, is defending the internal systems of the Agency amid revelations that investigators from anti-corruption agency, MOCA, are probing irregularities at the Authority.

The Dennis Chung led board, called in the Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency discovering several irregularities at the Metropolitan Parks and Markets, MPM, following an audit in September last year.

Mr. Gordon says the presence of MOCA at the Authority is testament to the fact that the internal systems put in place are working to eradicate incidents of corruption at the NSWMA.

The audit reportedly uncovered several procedural and documentation irregularities regarding cheques said to be valued at millions of dollars.

Mr.Gordon declined to provide details on the price tag associated with the discovery.

The MOCA investigation is said to have started a week ago.

Mr. Gordon says he’s constrained to reveal additional details, as the matter remains at a delicate stage.

The NSWMA boss says what the auditors and the board found was enough to cause them to call in the police to launch an investigation.
