Police have launched an investigation into the disappearance of an Oban File from the Bahamas Environment Science and Technology (BEST) Commission offices.
The revelation was first made to Eyewitness News after receiving a tip from within one of the government agencies working closely with the commission.
According to the source, “a series of meetings were taking place almost secretly so that the information wouldn’t become known, but only so much they could have held because they had to call police in to report the matter.”
EWN can confirm that police were indeed notified.
Speaking with Assistant Commissioner of Police Paul Rolle who heads up the Police Anti-Corruptions Unit, he revealed that his unit is investigating the disappearance of the Oban file.
“We were notified about a week ago of the matter and have since been investigating it,” Rolle admitted.
Although he did not go into any great detail about the investigation, he guardedly suggested that they did have some information that they were checking.
“I cannot disclose what was in the file but we are checking a number of things,” he said.
No further information has been revealed as to whether employees in the office of the BEST Commission have been questioned or will be for that matter.
It also remains unknown at this time whether this was a deliberate act or where this leaves the controversial $5.5 billion Oban deal at this point.
