NESOL employee, mechanic facing corruption charges

Two men, including a senior employee of the government-run National Energy Solutions programme (NESOL), have been charged with money laundering and bribery.
 
The NESOL employee, 33 year old engineer Lawrence Pommells along with 32 year old mechanic Ricardo Harris, both of Old Harbour addresses, were charged Wednesday night by detectives attached to the Constabulary Financial Unit of the Counter-Terrorism and Organised Crime Investigation Branch (C-TOC) and the Financial Investigation Division (FID).
 
The cops raided Mr. Pommells' home in New Harbour Village last Thursday and reportedly seized $35 million along with four high-end vehicles.
 
Further investigations led to Mr. Harris being arrested.
 
They have been charged with breaches of the Corruption Prevention Act, money laundering as well as being in possession of criminal property and bribery.
 
Assistant Superintendent Gordon Ellison, head of the Constabulary Financial Unit, told RJR News that investigators raided the offices of NESOL on Tuesday and seized documents as part of the probe.
 
Mr. Pommells and Mr. Harris are booked to appear before the St. Catherine Parish Court on Friday.
