Jamaica (Jamaica Observer) – THE probe into the multi-billion-dollar fraud at investment firm Stocks and Securities Limited (SSL), which has left the nation shell-shocked, continues to grow tentacles.
Finance Minister Dr Nigel Clarke has advised that the involvement of the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) will extend beyond what was initially expected.
Last week he announced that the Government would engage the FBI in its quest to uncover all details of the more-than-a-decade-old theft and hold those responsible to account.
Speaking at the biennial conference of the Financial Investigations Division (FID) at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel on Wednesday, the finance minister said, “In the briefing that I have received, based on developments, the FBI is going to be intensifying their involvement even beyond what would have been thought when I first made that statement.”
