Guyana: National Parks Commission irregularities

National Parks Commission sacks Accountant, Clerk, suspends Manager


Two officials of the Accounts Department of the National Parks Commission (NPC) have been dismissed amidst an investigation over missing monies and a number of other irregularities.
That state-run agency’s Manager, , has also been suspended for three days for being “delinquent” with her duties, NPC’s officials say.
Kaieteur News was told that Mohanlall Ramrattan, the Accountant, and Hemchand John, a Clerk, were both given marching orders recently.
Officials also confirmed that the police are investigating and an audit is underway. 
NPC is charged with managing the National Park, the Zoological Gardens and the Kaieteur National Park.
The Commission has been under a financial strain in recent times with plans underway to revamp the operations at the Zoo and National Park.
According to well-placed sources, Vasconcellos was mandated to carry out a number of tasks critical to the turnaround of NPC but failed to meet targets.
Deputy Manager, Soren Griffith, will be acting as Manager until the return of Vasconcellos.

    I am sorry that Miss Vasconcellous was involved in this story. She is a very good worker and most likely she was put in this mess by those who were dismissed.
