Fritz Pinnock extends leave until corruption probe complete
President of the Caribbean Maritime University (CMU), Dr Fritz Pinnock, has had his voluntary leave of absence extended until the investigations into the affairs of the Kingston-based institution have been completed.
Pinnock, who was scheduled to return to work on Monday, first went on six weeks leave effective July 5.
His leave was then extended until September 16.
Professor Ibrahim Ajagunna will continue to act as President and Professor Noel Brown as Deputy President.
Pinnock took leave amid ongoing corruption investigations involving former Minister of Education, Ruel Reid, the Education Ministry and the University.
In March, Reid was asked to resign by Prime Minister Andrew Holness to facilitate the investigations.
