THE NATIONAL Housing Trust (NHT) is reporting that it has put adequate measures in place to prevent a recurrence of fraudulent activities at the housing entity involving accounts belonging to Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller and other high-profile public figures.
General manager of the NHT, Cecile Watson, who appeared on Wednesday before Parliament's Public Administration and Appropriations Committee (PAAC), said it would be difficult, in future, for anyone to succeed in tampering with contributors' refund accounts.
She told members of the committee that the issue which grabbed public attention in June this year related to an employee who allegedly defrauded the Trust.
However, Watson said she could not provide further comment as the matter was now before the court.
In June, it was discovered that large sums of money were being taken from the accounts of contributors who did not apply for their refund.
The Fraud Squad was called in and a senior NHT employee was arrested and charged.
Other persons whose accounts were reportedly fleeced included former prime minister P.J. Patterson and Opposition spokes-man on finance, Audley Shaw.
