Prime Minister, Dr. the Right Honourable Keith Mitchell has met with the investigations team at the Office of the Integrity Commission.
Dr. Mitchell, as the Minister responsible for the Marketing and National Importing Board (MNIB), was called to meet with the investigations team as part of the information gathering process.
Prior to being called for an interview, Dr. Mitchell had indicated his willingness to meet with investigators looking into the operations of the MNIB.
Several other persons are expected to meet with the investigations team at the Office of the Integrity Commission. These interviews will continue after the Christmas season.
In September, the Office of the Integrity Commission announced that it had commenced an investigation into the current and past affairs of the MNIB. This came against the backdrop of allegations about the inappropriate use of funds.
