PRESS RELEASE FORENSIC AUDIT SHOULD ALSO BE APPLIED TO SENIOR OFFICIALS AND CORRUPT BUSINESS PEOPLE Friday, 16 January, 2009



The PNCR has noted that the Auditor General has confirmed that a forensic audit, into the assets of employees of the Custom and Trade Administration (CTA), has been authorised. Most Guyanese would regard this as an important step in the exercise in rooting out corruption from that department.

However, the PNCR believes that this tool would be useful in tracking down the now endemic corruption in all areas of the society.

The Auditor General and the Jagdeo Administration should call upon those persons and entities, including senior Government officials and corrupt business people, who have acquired assets, which bare no relationship to their incomes and earnings, to submit to similar forensic audits.
