Three persons are on station bail as police continue their investigations into irregularities at the Guyana Rice Development Board (GRDB), Burma, which is situated within the Mahaicony – Abary project area of the MMA/ADA.
The GRDB is a semi-autonomous government agency responsible for the administration of state lands in the area. The agency would also work in collaboration with the MMA/ADA providing drainage and irrigation for farmers.
After the APNU-AFC Government took office, a board of directors under the chairmanship of Abel Seetaram was sworn in. Seetaram has since been removed from office, and has been replaced by Ms. Allison Bourne.
Standard operational procedure would require that anyone taking over responsibility would seek to have an audit or inventory done. The audit would have unearthed some irregularities which have been reported to the police.
According to Divisional Commander, Marlon Chapman, investigations are ongoing. In excess of $2 million has been misappropriated, according to the audit and so far the police have questioned the three persons who have been placed on station bail.
The next phase of the police investigations would see the police submitting their findings to the DDP, and for them to be advised on charges to be laid where necessary.
The former General Manager and one member of the board of directors are among the people questioned so far. The police are continuing their investigations.
