The People’s National Party (PNP) is calling for a forensic audit to be conducted at Petrojam following the report of the Auditor General into operations at the state owned entity.
The report was tabled in the House Tuesday, December 4.
The PNP says report confirms a number of the concerns that it raised from as far back as May of this year.
In a statement today, the PNP said in addition to the forensic audit of the state owned agency, the matter should be immediately referred to the Commissioner of Police to begin criminal investigations into a number of what appears to be questionable transactions.
These it says include the donation of funds, payments to consultants and direct contracting of suppliers. The Party notes that the Auditor General’s Report raised issues which occurred at Petrojam under the last PNP Administration and says the Party is committed to the principles of accountability and transparency and welcomes a more detailed probe to determine who should be held accountable for the losses at the entity.
