Housing Material Probe Continues Featured

Housing Material Probe Continues

MORE DETAILS ARE EMERGING about possible wrong doing within the government’s housing programme.

Police have been seizing building material and questioning several persons believed to have been in possession of illegally obtained building supplies in St Patrick East.

One woman, Amina Logie, was detained for several hours last week and questioned about what is believed to be fraudulent activity within the programme.

According to a police source Logie, the Housing Officer for St Patrick West is assisting the police in their probe.

Police investigators have unearthed details of the fraud, which it is believed involves more than $100,000.00 in building supplies.

This newspaper was told that there might have been an “inside man” at the hardware company which was also being cheated through the alleged scheme.

Two persons have since been fired from the company.

A number of persons are also claiming to be out of hard cash after money was taken from them with a promise that they would receive material. 

A source said some of those who received materials under this scheme were actual applicants to the housing programme though some of them had not yet been awarded material. 

There is evidence, according to our sources, that at least $7,000.00 cash had changed hands but no material was handed over.

“Persons did not even receive one nail”, someone close to the situation told this newspaper.

Police are looking into the extent of the fraud but a source said area MP Anthony Boatswain had been unaware of what was happening.

Last week he confirmed that an investigation is on but he couldn’t speak to the details.
