The Gleaner/Power 106 News Centre understands that three prominent local figures are facing possible charges of perverting the course of justice.

They are: West Portland MP Daryl Vaz; a prolific senior superintendent of police; and, a powerful St Andrew businessman with close ties to the Jamaica Labour Party.

Last night, we were unable to reach the senior superintendent or the businessman for a comment on the matter.

However, Vaz reported that he has heard about the likely impending charge.

He also said he has learned that the charges relate to a traffic violation.

But Mr Vaz insists he was not the offender in the matter.

He also said he would be seeking to get more details on the reported development today.

The Director of Public Prosecutions reportedly recently handed down the ruling against the three.

STATEMENT FROM DARYL VAZ, MP

I was today formally advised that arising from an investigation into a traffic violation involving my close personal friend, the DPP Office has ruled that I be charged under section 14 -2 of the Corruption Prevention Act which states: A person commits an act of corruption if he offers or grants, directly or indirectly, to a public servant any article, money or other benefit, being a gift, favour, promise of advantage to the public servant or another person, for doing any act or omitting to do any act in the performance of the public servant’s public function.

I categorically deny doing any of the above and will be vigorously contesting this charge through my attorney Mr. George Soutar QC. My involvement in this matter is of a personal nature and as such I would never compromise myself or any public officer.

My enquiries into this matter concerning my close friend were made out of concern and done openly and with no ill intent.

DARYL VAZ MP
