Grenada court rules in favor of Integrity Commission

The High Court in Grenada on Friday ruled that the Integrity Commission acted in accordance with the law when it started its inquiry into the allegation of financial wrongdoing at the Marketing and National Importing Board (MNIB).

Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley said in July last year that the Cabinet had endorsed a recommendation for a thorough investigation of the MNIB and in September, the Integrity Commission announced that it had launched a probe into MNIB following media reports and other statements in the public domain.

It said that the probe would cover the “current and past affairs at the Board, from early August 2018”.

Mitchell had also indicated that much had gone wrong at the MNIB and the investigation would cover the period 2013 to 2018.

But, the former MNIB chief executive officer, Ruel Edwards, challenged the decision of the Commission in Court claiming that it had no right to conduct an inquiry without a written complaint.Read More…
