KINGSTON, Jamaica— The People's National Party (PNP) has welcomed the appointment of Keisha Prince as the new director of corruption prosecution.

Prince will act in the post for a period of six months.

The PNP, in a statement this afternoon, said the appointment was long overdue, but questioned whether six months would be sufficient time for effectiveness in the job.

The party however expressed hope that Prince would be able to bring prosecutions in the eight corruption cases for which investigations began last year.

PNP General Secretary, Julian Robinson, said these outstanding cases included Petrojam, where the investigation has been completed and referred to the director of corruption prosecution.

Robinson noted that although the report was referred in July, the country had not received any updates, neither has any action been taken.

He also urged the new corruption prosecutor to provide the public with status reports on the investigations at the National Energy Solutions Ltd (NESoL), the Universal Service Fund (USF), the Caribbean Maritime University (CMU) and the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information (MOEYI).
