GLGOU’s express its concerns of Fraud at City Hall
The Guyana Local Government Officer’s Union has stated its position on that three million dollar alleged fraud unearthed over at City Hall. The union which represents a significant portion of the council’s workers is calling for a full investigation into the matter.
President of GLGOU Andrew Garnett.
According to Garnett, the union had received numerous complaints from the City Treasurer’s department about a faulty software program used to cash payments of rates and taxes. This he said was brought to the attention of the senior officers within the council on several occasions but was ignored.
The union said it has been advised by an independent IT professional upon examination of the software program, that the cashiers did not have the level of access and therefore could not make the alleged changes in the software to facilitate the scam.
In light of this, the union is refuting claims reported in sections of the press that the cashier for the $3.3M transaction was Charlene Gittens.
GLGOU is urging the commissioner of Inquiry to leave no stone unturned to get to the bottom of the fraud allegations
