Nationwide News understands that the Human Resources Manager at the state-owned oil refinery, Petrojam, Yolande Ramharack, has resigned.

Ms. Ramharack reportedly submitted her resignation last week. She had been embroiled in allegations of nepotism at the state-owned oil refinery. Her $13-million per year pay package had come under public scrutiny.

Ms. Ramharack’s academic qualifications were also questioned during recent sittings of parliament’s Public Administration and Appropriations Committee, PAAC. Ramharack appeared before the PAAC and denied wrongdoing.

It’s understood that Ms. Ramharack came to an agreement with the new leadership of the state-owned oil refinery to separate herself from the entity. Her resignation reportedly took effect last week.

Ramharack began serving as Human Resource Development and Administration Manager at Petrojam in February 2017.
