Concerns by members of the board of the St Ann Development Company (SADCO) about ticket revenue being generated at Dunn’s River Falls and Park have prompted a major investigation. The police Fraud Squad, Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Task Force, and the Office of the Auditor General are among the entities probing the case.
The Urban Development Corporation (UDC) last week signalled the start of the probe as it announced that it has ordered a detailed examination into the operations of SADCO, specifically in relation to Dunn’s River Falls and Park.
While not providing details, the UDC said that based on preliminary internal reports, there was sufficient cause for concern.
According to Gleaner sources, the issue was first raised during the March meeting of the SADCO board where it was noted that the gross income from the falls had declined by $10 million, or seven per cent, to $127 million.
