Radcliffe Lewis supporting JUTC boss amid calls for his resignation
The head of the Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC's) Franchise Protection and Management Unit, Radcliffe Lewis, is supporting the company's embattled managing director, Colin Campbell, amid calls for him to step down.
Campbell has been highly criticized by the Opposition for his management following the uncovering of a multi-million dollar spare parts theft at the company.
According to Lewis, a former Senior Superintendent of Police, it’s because of the accountability systems put in place by Campbell that the near $3 million theft was discovered.
Lewis, who insists his comments are not politically motivated, says Campbell may very well be the best Managing Director the JUTC has ever had.
In the meantime, the Police Flying Squad is now investigating the theft at the JUTC, which Lewis believes is an inside job.
He says 12 members of the department in question have been interdicted.
According to Lewis, if no one is found criminally responsible, the entire department should be paid off and let go.
