Senior examiner, two men held for corruption

A senior examiner and two men, who were arrested in Kingston and St Thomas by detectives attached to the Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Task Force (MOCA) on Friday, March 28, were formally charged yesterday.

They are 58-year-old Howard Shloss, senior motor-vehicle examiner of Duhaney Park, Kingston 20, 60-year-old Earl Madden, of Seaforth, St Thomas, and 74-year-old Harold Hue of Church Corner, also in St Thomas.

All three men are charged with breaches of the Corruption Prevention Act, while Shloss is also facing additional charges of making a false declaration contrary to Section 18 of the Road Traffic Act, as well as attempting to pervert the course of justice.

Information received is that on Friday, a team from MOCA, members of the Mobile Reserve and the Flying Squad carried out an operation at premises in Kingston and St Thomas. This was as a result of an ongoing investigation into irregularities in the process by which persons are granted new and upgraded licences. Based on investigations, several cases did not follow the correct procedures and licences were obtained under questionable circumstances.

The men are to appear in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court today.
