Police Commissioner, Major General Antony Anderson, has confirmed that sacked Education Minister and former Senator, Ruel Reid, is the subject of a multi-agency criminal investigation.

On March 20 this year, Prime Minister Andrew Holness fired Reid from his Cabinet.

Reid was fired amidst a Police probe into some agencies which fall under the auspices of the Education Ministry.
