<<< The smoke on the Milo Butler Highway as a result of the fire at the City Dump. Bahamas Press is shocked to know more money is GONE out of the DEH and perhaps the fire is another smoke screen. We shall see.
Nassau, Bahamas — Bahamas Press has some nail biting questions for the leadership at the Department of the Environment [DEH] and it has nothing to do with the fire at the City Dump. Your BP while the country was all busy about Lizzy’s by-election, we was digging deep in the rubble and mounds of paper in the said department.
An explosive story, yes just like the wild fire at the dump, has occurred and if our forensic team has its way, someone in the Ingraham administration, possibly at the level of the Executive, could land themselves in the Big House.
Information coming to BP reveals senior personal maybe hiding at the City Dump from questions now being put by officers of the Ministry of Finance. Once again BP’s deep throat in the Office of the Prime Minister [OPM] has some pressing questions for the department.
BP has learned that while several road cleanup contracts were cancelled, many cheques were issued by the department; paid to individuals and individual companies where work was never done.
BP has learned cheques were paid to companies included those connected to Hiram Kelly in the amount of $210,000, Clement Chea in the amounts of $377,000 and Dean’s Cleaning in the amounts of $580,000 but to the surprise of accountants in the OPM, much of the work paid for by taxpayer’s money was never done. There was no tenders for the jobs and the finance department do not know what these contractors did for the public. BP asks, WHERE IS THE MONEY GO?
“Much of the money was also paid out by the department to ghost workers who never showed up to produce on verges and parks. Where the money has all gone is now what we are mandated to find out,” the source in the OPM told BP.
Officers from ministry of finance are now converged on Farrington Road to commence a detail investigation on the corruption and squander of public money in the department. Once again Bahamas Press is SMOKING THEM OUT!
Your BP is following this breaking story.
