Senior NCB employee arrested in multimillion-dollar fraud
A senior employee of the National Commercial Bank was arrested by the police Fraud Squad on Wednesday over an alleged multimillion-dollar racket uncovered this week.
The man was nabbed in St Andrew.
Dane Nicholson, NCB's manager of special investigations in its Fraud Prevention Unit, declined to comment on the matter.
Assistant Commissioner of Police Anthony McLaughlin, who heads the Counter-Terrorism and Organised Crime Division, confirmed the development.
But McLaughlin said he could not give additional details because he had just received a report on the matter.
Last May, a former NCB senior manager Andrea Gordon, who admitted to swindling $34 million from the financial institution, was sentenced to a total of seven years and six months in prison.
