An inquiry into allegations of sexual harassment at the National Lotteries Authority (NLA) is expected to conclude next week Friday.
Attorney-at-Law, Ian H.H. Sandy, and Pastor Gerald Keens-Douglas are conducting the inquiry, which began one week ago.
The inquiry comes days after the powerful Technical and Allied Workers Union (TAWU) took to the Carenage, St George’s in protest action demanding justice for affected NLA workers.
One of the calls from TAWU was for the immediate suspension of the alleged perpetrator, and other members of the Board of Directors.
By way of a letter the NLA workers were informed last week that the individual at the centre of the controversy will proceed on leave for the duration of the inquiry.
TAWU’s President General, Senator Chester Humphrey believes the NLA bosses are involved in acts of covering up sexual harassment allegations that allegedly too place against four female employees.
The union believes the allegations against the NLA official dates back to 2010.
