The Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency (MOCA) is currently investigating more than 300 possible corruption cases.
This was revealed by Prime Minister Andrew Holness on Sunday while addressing a meeting of the governing Jamaica Labour Party’s Area Council One meeting in St. Andrew.
MOCA is now an elite agency which focuses on tackling corruption in the public sector and bringing high-level criminal targets to justice.
Mr. Holness said MOCA and other agencies such as the Integrity Commission are part of a system designed to move away from the strategy of simply naming and shaming wrongdoers without further action.
He was speaking against the background of recent revelations concerning alleged corrupt practices at the state owned oil refinery Petrojam and two other agencies which fell under the auspices of the then Ministry of Science, Energy & Technology.
