On Wednesday, January 25, Finance Minister, Dr. Nigel Clarke, posted on his official Twitter page about the progress that the SSL (Stocks and Securities Limited) fraud case has made.
Previously, documents contrary to the statements of former SSL management were made public by Minister Clarke, proving the existence of an account by Usain Bolt at SSL, under a Liability Company by the name of Welljen.
Yesterday, he made public a few more documents that gave insight into where the stage of the ongoing investigation is at currently. The document was a combined statement from the GOJ (Government of Jamaica), under the office of the Minister of Finance and The Public Service.
The statement read, “Consequent on an attempt made to undertake a members’ voluntary winding up of Stocks and Securities Limited (“SSL”), the Financial Services Commission (“FSC”), is undertaking its statutory role, obtaining court orders to restrain SSL, the purported Trustee of SSL and Directors of SSL-,” with four points highlighted.
The points prohibit any disposal of evidence, interference with FSC agents, liquidation of SSL company assets, or any reorganization of the company’s management.
Clarke also mentioned that close to, or on the date of Monday, January 16, SSL sought to have a voluntary member wind up with the Companies Office after they were placed under Temporary Management by the FSC.
The FSC went to court in order to prevent the SSL from undertaking a winding up process themselves.
