T&T: Cops Monitoring Govt Official’s Transactions


(Trinidad Guardian) Investigators from the Anti-Corruption Investigations Bureau (ACIB) are continuing their probe into a particular transaction involving the potential sale of a luxury vehicle by a Government official, but senior investigators told Guardian Media last night that contrary to information carried in another newspaper, there has been “no search of a government official’s home.”

Two days ago, Commissioner of Police Gary Griffith confirmed to another newspaper that a Government official was under investigation for facilitating a tax exemption for one million for a member of the public to buy a luxury vehicle.

Contacted last evening, Griffith said he would neither confirm nor deny anything at this stage.

Well-placed sources familiar with the case, who have been speaking with Guardian Media over the last few days, said that investigators had been asking for particular guidance from the white-collar units of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service on the matter.
