Police Officers were on Wednesday afternoon observed loading piles of documents belonging to the National Industrial and Commercial Investments Limited (NICIL) into the back of pickup trucks.
Police Commissioner Seelall Persaud confirmed that the Police Officers have commenced investigations into the controversial entity; however, he did not elaborate on the probe.
However, when contacted, Crime Chief Wendall Blanhum said he was unaware of ranks being given an order to remove documents from NICIL.
The State Assets Recovery Unit (SARU), which has been playing a role in investigations of this nature, also denied having any knowledge of documents being carried away.
State Minister Joseph Harmon had announced that Government would be handing over the NICIL forensic audit report to the Police to further investigate the contents of the report. He explained the forensic audit conducted by Anand Goolsarran into NICIL proved that there was sufficient information for the matter to be transferred to the Police.
To facilitate this, NICIL Executive Director Winston Brassington and his Deputy Marcia Nadir- Sharma proceeded on leave.
