Marlon Francis, the man named as a person of interest by investigators probing the multimillion-dollar fraud at the Jamaica Teachers’ Association (JTA), remains at large.



Francis is an employee of the JTA.



Investigators are repeating their call for him to surrender immediately.



The fraud at the JTA was uncovered by auditors about three weeks ago when fraudulent claims and fictitious cheques were discovered.



It is reported that some $100 million has been stolen in the scam.



The four-member accounting department at the JTA has been sent home on paid leave as the organisation and the police probe the theft.
