There is a possibility that criminal sanctions could emerge from the deepening Petrojam scandal.
Director of Communications in the Office of the Prime Minister, Robert Morgan, has indicated that it is under serious consideration by Prime Minister Andrew Holness.
This latest development follows the tabling of a report by the Auditor General highlighting glaring breaches of procurement procedures, nepotism and wasteful spending at the state entity.
Holness received the report yesterday and has promised to speak soon on the matter.
Morgan disclosed that the Prime Minister has identified some urgent aspects of the report which require action, adding that he is not ruling out a forensic audit to determine whether criminal liability exists.
