The Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency (MOCA) is reporting that it has arrested and charged another person in the alleged fraud racket at the Manchester Municipal Corporation.

MOCA says 43-year-old bank teller, Radcliffe McLean, of Porus, Manchester, was charged yesterday with conspiracy to defraud.

Four other persons have already been charged in the case.

Before the court are Deputy Superintendent of Road and Works at the municipal corporation, 31-year-old Sanja Elliott; 27-year-old carpenter, Dwayne Sibblies; temporary works overseer, Kendale Roberts and businessman David Harris.

McLean is scheduled to appear in court tomorrow.

The other co-accused are also expected to go to court tomorrow.

MOCA says investigations revealed that between January 1, 2014 and June 24, 2016, McLean conspired with Elliott and Sibblies to process fraudulent cheques drawn on the account of the municipal corporation.

Elliott, Sibblies, Roberts, and Harris were arrested and charged between 2016 and 2017 after investigations unearthed a grand conspiracy and fraud at the local government authority.
