The investigations are being conducted by the Financial Investigations Division, FID, the major Organized Crime Division, MOCA, the Auditor General’s Department and the Integrity Commission.
Dr. Phillips says there’s been too much silence about ongoing corruption investigations.

He commented on options he says are available to the Opposition if an update on the corruption investigations isn’t provided.
Dr. Phillips also called for the board of the CMU to be dismissed.
Dr. Phillips was addressing a media conference this afternoon.
He was flanked by PNP Executive members including – Dr. Wykeham McNeil, Fitz Jackson, Mikael Phillips and Phillip Paulwell.
