Investigations continue at the Tobago House of Assembly Division of Tourism, Culture and Transportation by the Fraud Squad into all incidents of incorrect disbursement of funds.
THA Chief Secretary, Kelvin Charles, assured that the Assembly is co-operating with the investigators, in an effort to facilitate a smooth and thorough process.
All persons attached to these incidents have since been sent on administrative leave by the Division of Tourism in the case of the contract workers and by the Public Service Commission with respect to the two public officers.
However, in a media release Mr. Charles said it must be understood that it is vital for due process to be done.
He said sometimes investigations take time and the experts must ensure that the necessary processes are executed in a professional and accurate manner.
The Chief Secretary further stated that incidents such as these ought to encourage all persons to carry out duties at their places of work in an honest manner.
