Lawyer: Audit report reveals millions allegedly missing from PSA


NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Attorney Maria Daxon, who is representing a group of disgruntled officers of the Police Staff Association, on Wednesday claimed that a forensic audit report reveals that there were millions of dollars missing from the Police Staff Association’s general ledger.

“What we have here is a forensic audit report that was done in 2010. And Bahamians, if you see the garbage and see what they were doing in the staff association, you would cry shame on these police officers,” Daxon told the media yesterday outside of court.

Members of the Police Staff Association returned to court yesterday as several protested last month’s election of officers which they claimed was rigged.

A hearing on the matter was held Wednesday before Justice Diane Stuart.

Daxon told the media that according to the forensic audit report, the PSA reportedly made over a million dollars in 2009 but have nothing to show for it.

“They have no building, no car, no nothing to show. And after we work out how much dues they collected, from 1997 to 2018, it was over 20 million dollars. No checks and balances were going on in the Police Staff Association, none whatsoever,” Daxon alleged.

On the other hand, attorney for the executive team of the Police Staff Association, Wayne Munroe, Q.C. said the case had no substance.

“We got leave to file another affidavit in regards to this injunction application, which is set for May 30. That’s basically all that happened,” Munroe said.
