ACIB working with Malaysian cops

In a release issued yesterday, Philbert noted police investigators continue to conduct enquiries into the allegations surrounding Udecott and former executive chairman Calder Hart. He noted the enquiries include the collection and collation of documentation and the conducting of interviews of persons of interest. Philbert did not state if and when Hart will be required to be interviewed by the police. Philbert noted the process is very detailed and time consuming and requires careful analysis of all documents.

“We have been in close communications with our counterparts in Malaysia through Interpol, and we are awaiting their conclusion of investigations. The process, however, takes time,” he explained.

He made it clear that “all allegations must be substantiated beyond a reasonable doubt. Until we have conducted and collected all such information and substantiated them fully, we will then be in a position to complete all our enquiries and report back to the national community”.

The ACIB is probing the award of a $368 million contract to two directors of Sunway Caribbean Construction Limited for the Ministry of Legal Affairs Tower. The two directors are reportedly linked to Sherrine Hart, the wife of Hart.

Documents submitted by the Congress of the People (COP) which indicate that the two directors are the brother and brother-in-law of Sherrine Hart were forwarded to Philbert and Director of Public Prosecutions Roger Gaspard. The documents were then sent to the ACIB for investigations.
