JTA to go after defrauded assets
The Jamaica Teachers Association (JTA) has engaged the services of an attorney to go after some $91 million in assets which the police believe were purchased with money defrauded from the union.
Following a Gleaner report in August, the JTA confirmed that its accounting system was breached.
The Fraud Squad has since identified a man they believe is the main suspect in the $100 million fraud, as well as assets they believe the money was used to purchase.
Addressing the St Mary Teachers’ Association half-yearly meeting yesterday, president-elect of the JTA Doran Dixon, announced that the union has also engaged the services of auditors to reconcile its books.
He also announced that employees in the JTA’s accounts department remain on leave and that the police are continuing their search for the main perpetrators of the fraud.
