Apr 12, 2016 News Comments Off on Guyoil, GEA inquiry report into alleged wrongdoings due next month
Minister of State, Joseph Harmon, yesterday met with the members of the Board of
Inquiry, which was mandated to investigate the allegations of mismanagement and wrongdoing at the Guyana Oil Company (Guyoil) and Guyana Energy Agency (GEA).
The Board members, who were appointed in March, met with the Minister to update him on their progress and provided an oral preliminary report, a Ministry of the Presidency statement said yesterday.
Assistant Commissioner Winston Cosbert leads the Board. The other members are Superintendent Julius Wright and Major Edgar Adams.
The Board was commissioned following several allegations of misconduct against staff within both fuel agencies.
The aim of the inquiry is to advise the state on the veracity of those allegations and to report their findings and conclusions to the Government and to make recommendations on actions to be taken if individuals are found culpable.
The report is due on May 16, 2016, the Ministry said.
GuyOil’s Board of Directors fired its Managing Director, Badrie Persaud, saying that a forensic audit report found he took unauthorized decisions. They lost confidence in him.
With regard to GEA, headed by Dr. Mahender Sharma, that agency has been under the spotlight for its management of fuel purchases for the country.
The forensic audit report flagged a number of issues, including the questionable use of lie detector tests on staffers.
