Nassau | The Royal Bahamas Police (RBPF) interviewed a former fiancee, former chairman of the Water and Sewerage Corporation Adrian Gibson, while authorities are stepping up investigations into serious misconduct at utilities.
Alexandria McKee, who shared a Royal Bank account with Gibson and was involved with him, was listed as a director of Elite Maintenance, who received hundreds of thousands of dollars on a WSC contract when Gibson was chairman.
Top sources told the gallery that McKee was very supportive of the police during the interview and provided all the information requested by the authorities to unravel the complex web woven during Gibson’s tenure. I am.
Police also contacted former WSC general manager Elwood Donaldson in an attempt to summarize how the company’s president, Fiance (lawyer) and cousin (marketing manager), secured an external maintenance contract. I asked him to ask a question today. The scope of their area of expertise.
According to the leaked document, Elite Maintenance Incorporated Ltd received a series of payments from WSC totaling over $ 500,000 between November 2018 and January 2021. The largest payments were $ 232,206 on January 7, 2021, $ 131,601.12 on July 7, 2020, and $ 15,600 on November 6, 2018. Attorney McKee and marketing manager Rashe Gibson are listed as directors of the company, which was founded in June 2018.
Their contract was signed with WSC in August 2018. In a police complaint filed by Adrian Gibson with the Police Anti-Corruption Branch on October 30, 2020, the Long Island MP called McKee his fiancé.
In a police report, Gibson said:
The account is based on the Cable Beach branch and there is also online banking for that account. In August 2021, Donaldson confirmed in a statement that WSC had signed a contract with McKee.
“We can confirm that Alexandria McKee (lawyer), who originally interacted with the company as a legal representative of a company named Elite Maintenance, actually notified the company via communication.
“I was informed of her permission to act as a record lawyer. At a later point, the lawyer was no longer authorized to act on behalf of the company, according to a statement released by Donaldson. Notified that and requested correction of WSC records.
Instead of addressing explicit conflicts of interest, the then water and sewerage GM focused on leaking water and sewerage information instead. An ongoing investigation into explicit conflicts of interest and serious mismanagement of corporate funds will take place months later-Prime Minister Hubert Minis repeatedly defends Gibson, despite abominable evidence against Gibson. bottom.
The then minister, Desmond Banister, remained a mother about the scandal because he was afraid that his own conflict of interests would come to light.
Will Minis and Banister defend Gibson again if a criminal accusation is filed as a result of a WSC investigation?
It will also be interesting to see how Michael Pintaldo, the leader of the new Free National Movement (FNM), responds to obvious misconduct under the Minis administration.
