NEW Works and Transport Minister Arnold Piggott is being asked to probe the assignment of four Mitsubishi Pajero vehicles purchased by his ministry last September at a cost of $865,000.
The four-wheel-drive vehicles were bought for the Highways Division of the ministry, and approved for that purpose by Permanent Secretary Yolande Gooding. However, upon delivery, one vehicle was assigned to then minister Carlos John, another to parliamentary secretary Chandresh Sharma, and three to officials outside the Highways Division.
That, according to then Director of Highways Hilton Charles was contrary to the terms under which the vehicles were acquired. MORE
