The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, ODPP says it is not yet able to prepare a ruling in relation to the fraud case at Stocks and Securities Limited, SSL.

This comes in the wake of criticism from opposition leader Mark Golding that the ODPP is dragging it’s feet, in relation to investigations into the matter.

In a release yesterday (Fri), the ODPP noted that there are outstanding documents that have not yet been obtained from the Financial Investigations Division, FID, which is probing the case.

It said the last set of documents received from the FID was on March 6, 2024 and thereafter a meeting was arranged for the end of March, to discuss all the materials submitted, thus far.

Despite this, it noted that continuous consultations have been taking place with the team, headed by a deputy director of public prosecutions, with the most recent meeting being held this week.
