[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Board of Directors of the Cheddi Jagan International Airport is calling on the Alliance For Change (AFC) to make available to the appropriate authorities all evidence it claims to have with regards to the alleged massive fraud at CJIA.
iNews reported earlier today that the AFC has uncovered a major fraud at the Airport as it relates to the award of contracts. AFC Executive Member, Cathy Hughes at a press conference stated senior officials may be using their office to perpetuate fraud against CJIA.
However, one of the Directors at the Airport told iNews that “these malicious allegations may be the work of an aggrieved senior employee who was recently disciplined for a series of misconduct.
According to Director, who prefers to remain anonymous, “the aggrieved employee may have exhausted all appeals made to various persons and took this avenue as a last ditch to discredit the Corporation.”
The Director is therefore urging the AFC to be cautious about this matter and not to buy into wholesale the allegations being made.
Hughes told reporters, “The AFC was made to understand that a senior employee who had attempted to defraud the company by identifying an imposter as a contractor to whom large sums of money were payable, is still on the job”.
The AFC is yet to hand over this information to the Police to conduct its investigations and Hughes noted that this will be done until after all the information is gathered.
“The Alliance For Change is gathering evidence of the multitude of wrongdoings and while we understand that employees fear victimisation if they should report what is happening at the airport, we call on them to speak and help stop fraud.”
Hughes also plans to “name names” if the matter is not investigated and persons are not held accountable for this type of illegality.
