In a release this afternoon, Deputy Director General at MOCA, Assistant Commissioner of Police Selvin Hay, said the actions of MOCA and its partners are in no way influenced by politics.

The Major Organized Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency (MOCA) is dismissing suggestions its recent raids on three parish councils are politically motivated.

Today, the National Caucus of People’s National Party Councillors said it was extremely concerned about the raids, which it said appear to be political in nature.

However, in a release this afternoon, Deputy Director General at MOCA, Assistant Commissioner of Police Selvin Hay, said the actions of MOCA and its partners are in no way influenced by politics.

He says its activities are the result of ongoing painstaking investigations that have led to the launch of a series of search and seizure operations.

Hay says throughout the operations MOCA and its partners have been diligent in their approach, decisive in action and professional in conduct as they hold true to their mantra that no one is above the law.
