General Manager of Petrojam, Floyd Grindley, is the first official at the state-run oil refinery to become a casualty of the growing list of allegations of corruption, financial mismanagement and cronyism.
Prime Minister Andrew Holness has indicated that more changes to Petrojam's management are coming.
The disclosure was made by Mr. Holness during another statement on the Petrojam controversy in the House of Representatives yesterday evening.
He said Mr. Grindley was separated from the job following discussions with the new Petrojam board. He indicated that he has remained separated from the process of disengagement and will need further information
Last week scores of workers at Petrojam staged a protest demanding that Mr. Grindley and the Human Resources Manager, Yolande Ramharrack, be sacked. Mr. Holness yesterday said questions about whether Ms Ramharrack will be fired were unfair.
