The Director of Public Prosecutions Paula Llewellyn says her office will not prefer criminal charges against controversial South West Member of Parliament Everald Warmington.
South West St Catherine MP Everald Warmington - File
In September 2011, the Office of the Contractor General (OCG)had accused Warmington of committing an offence under the Perjury Act.
But in a media release this afternoon, the DPP said there is insufficient evidentiary material at this time to institute criminal proceedings against Warmington, a former director of Strathairn Construction Company Limited.
The OCG had referred Warmington to the DPP following an investigation into allegations of impropriety and/or irregularity in the award of certain contracts to Strathairn by the St Catherine Parish Council, the National Works Agency and the Ministry of Transport and Works.
This afternoon, the DPP also said no charges would be be laid against former directors Lloyd Grant and Howard Charvis for the offences of perjury and breach of section 29 of the Contractor General’s Act.
Company directors Howard Charvis, Selvyn Foster, Leslie Henry and Nicole Warmington will not be charged either.
"Barring any new material coming forward we do not see where any useful purpose will be gained by directing the police to investigate this matter,” Llewellyn said.
