The police have arrested a former employee of the National Solid Waste Management Authority (NSWMA) in connection with a multi-million dollar crime at the public cleansing body.
In a statement to the House of Representatives today, Local Government Minister Noel Arscott, said the crime involves at least $160 million.
Arscott said the former employee was arrested and charged under the Corruption Prevention Act and the Proceeds of Crime Act.
He told Parliamentarians that the person arrested "was connected to the NSWMA."
Delroy Chuck the Leader of Opposition Business in the House descibed the minister's statement as vague. He characterised it as "speculative and mischievous rather than being exact."
Arscott said the Financial Investigation Division was asked to carry out a forensic audit of the agency, including procurement activities for the financial year 2011-2012.
