Personnel from the Integrity Commission are conducting a raid at the St Ann Municipal Corporation in St Ann’s Bay.

The Gleaner understands that documents and computers have been seized.

The commission indicated that it intends to monitor the Government’s COVID-19-related expenses and contract awards.

The corporation has been under scrutiny over the installation of a charging port for the private Porsche motorcar of St Ann’s Bay mayor Michael Belnavis and a $46 million sanitation contract for parts of Ocho Rios.

Belnavis has hit back at critics.
