KINGSTON, Jamaica — President of the Caribbean Maritime University (CMU) Professor Fritz Pinnock was taken into police custody a short while ago from his St Catherine home, following an early morning raid by investigators in connection with a major corruption probe.

This follows on-going investigations into corruption allegations which prompted Pinnock's special leave with immediate effect and former Education Minister Ruel Reid's resignation from Government on March 20.

Meanwhile, information from inside Reid's upper St Andrew house is that the entire family is inside while police continue the search which started at 5:00 am.

In addition, unconfirmedreports are that a St Ann councillor was arrested this morning in relation to investigations surrounding the corruption probe.
