The general public is being informed that the issue of the alleged revenue leakage at the Traffic Department, which was reported in February 2022, was forwarded to the IGP for further Police investigation.
The Police had advised that the National Audit Office (NAO) be invited to conduct the appropriate audit exercise to unearth what may have transpired.
The NAO had submitted a Draft Final Report in November 2022 for Management’s response, which has been achieved.
The Final Report covering the period Jan 2019 to December 2021 is expected to be submitted by the NAO soon and will determine the next appropriate steps for those found wanting.
Meanwhile, all Managers and subordinate staff within the relevant Units in the Traffic Department having responsibility in the delivery processes have been placed on interdiction pending the outcome of the Audit.
