Northern Development Authority Featured

On 30 June 2022, the Office of the Special Prosecutor commenced an investigation into suspected corruption and corruption-related offences in respect of a contract awarded by the Northern Development Authority (NDA) to A&Qs Consortium for consultancy services under the Infrastructure for Poverty Eradication Program, especially in respect of the quantum of the contract sum.

On 1 July 2022, the Special Prosecutor directed the Controller and Accountant General to immediately freeze payments arising from the contract. The Special Prosecutor has invited the Coordinator for Special Initiatives at the Jubilee House and several serving officers, including the Chief Executive, and relevant past officers of the NDA and officers of the A&Qs Consortium for questioning. All the invited persons have been placed on bail.

All persons deemed culpable by the Special Prosecutor for corruption and corruption-related offence(s) would be charged and arraigned before the High Court for prosecution.
