2013-09-05 09:19:25 | (0 Comments)
Former Group Managing Director of the Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica Dr Ruth Potopsingh is to take the witness stand this morning when the Cuban light bulb trial resumes.
Former Junior Energy Minister Kern Spencer and his former personal assistant, Colleen Wright, are on trial for allegedly benefiting improperly from the implementation of the Cuban Light bulb project.
They are facing corruption and money laundering charges.
So far, the former Permanent Secretary in the then Ministry of Industry, Technology, Energy and Commerce Dr Jean Dixon has testified.
She told the court yesterday that she did not establish a project implementation unit for the Cuban light bulb programme.
She also said she did not establish any monitoring committee for the programme which was a standard procedure for projects being undertaken by the ministry to ensure they comply with the government’s procurement guidelines.
