Anti-corruption cops make mystery arrest

| 29/06/2017

(CNS): The Anti-Corruption Commission’s investigators have arrested a 47-year-old man from George Town on suspicion of committing the offences of secret commissions and money laundering. The unidentified man was arrested Thursday morning and is currently in police custody at the Fairbanks detention centre as the inquiry continues, officials said. No other details of the arrest by the corruption cops has been revealed but it appears that the individual is not a civil servant. 

The allegation of secret commissions is contrary to section 21 of the Anti-Corruption Law, which appears to refer to indirect or direct bribes that can occur between non-public officials in the private sector.

Check back to CNS later for more on this story.

    Not sure if it’s related to FIFA/CIFA but you can be sure that Jeff Webb’s latest stay in sentencing has its rewards to him and fall-out for others locally!

    Secret commissions requires a benefactor and at least one receiving party…ie at least 2 parties…more arrests ought to follow if that’s the charge.

    Well, that’s a big relief, he’s not a civil servant!, maybe it won’t take 2 or 3 years tp prosecute him then.
