Oil refinery, Petrojam Limited, says it is not aware of investigations into reports of a "major fraud" at the entity.

Petrojam issued a statement a short while ago following claims raised by the Opposition.

This afternoon, Jamaica Labour Party chairman, Robert Montague issued a statement demanding answer from the Government about an "ongoing investigation" into an alleged fraud at Petrojam or one of its affiliated entities 

Montague claimed that after intense investigations, the police and customs authorities have made some breakthrough in the case.

But in its statement, Petrojam said it is not aware there is an investigation being conducted involving the company or any of its employees.
