Former NDC Overseer placed on $25,000 bail as fraud investigation continues
A Former Overseer of the La Jalousie/Nouvelle Flanders Neighbourhood Democratic Council (NDC) was this week placed on $25,000 bail as police continue their investigation into allegations of fraud against her.
Bibi Halima Razack also had her passport seized.
According to information received by News Room, Razack would usually issue receipts for the original sums of monies paid in rates and taxes to residents, however, changes the sum on the original receipts which is kept by the NDC.
The misappropriations were noticed in late May 2017 by the Finance Chairman who during his one-off inspection of the receipt books, noticed that the figures were changed.
She was placed on $25,000 bail by the police on Wednesday (June 21, 2017) and is expected to be charged shortly.
It was noted that over $1.6M was found missing from October 2016 to present. This is believed to be only a fraction of the overall sum as Razack was employed with the Agency for three years and the Officials were only able to comb through a small number of the receipt books.
Following the discovery, News Room was told by a reliable source that Razack walked off the job.
