Senior motor vehicle examiner for court today
The senior motor vehicle examiner and two other men, who were arrested on Friday have now been charged by police and are to appear in court today.
The men were charged by detectives attached to the Major Organized Crime and Anti-Corruption Task Force (MOCA), yesterday.
The motor vehicle examiner has been named as 58-year-old Howard Shloss, of Duhaney Park, Kingston 20.
The others are 60-year-old Earl Madden, of Seaforth, St Thomas and 74-year-old Harold Hue of Church Corner, also in St Thomas.
All three men are charged with breaches of the Corruption Prevention Act, while Shloss is also facing additional charges of making a false declaration contrary to section 18 of the Road Traffic Act and attempting to pervert the course of justice.
On Friday detectives attached to MOCA, members of the Mobile Reserve and the Flying Squad carried out an operation in Kingston and St Thomas.
The police say the operation resulted from an ongoing investigation into irregularities in the process by which persons are granted new and upgraded licences.
They say based on investigations, several cases did not follow the correct procedures and licences were obtained under questionable circumstances.
The men are to appear in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court.
