Auditors probing JTA multimillion-dollar fraud digging deeper

Auditors probing the multimillion-dollar theft at the Jamaica Teachers’ Association (JTA) are now going through financial records for as far back as four years ago.

A senior investigator in the case told our news centre that the information gathered so far is indicating that the scam runs much deeper than originally thought.

Auditors had said $58 million was found missing after reviewing the union’s financial statements for the fiscal year ending in April.

While not going into details, the senior investigator says detectives are steadily piecing together information regarding the extent of the scam and persons who may be involved.

The senior cop says investigators are yet to locate the former JTA worker who was named as a person of interest in the case.

It has been more than two weeks since the police launched a searched for Marlon Francis.
