This is the latest call being made to the authorities to probe EFCL in light of recent allegations of irregularities at the State purpose company.
EFCL has been in the news over the past few weeks following reports of bid rigging, reopening of closed tenders, improper or unlawful interference in the process of procurement of services and other irregularities.
In a letter dated June 7, 2017, addressed to Acting Senior Superintendent Totaram Dookie of the Fraud Squad, Moonilal requested the Fraud Squad embark upon a prompt and thorough investigation into these reports and undertake appropriate follow-up action.
The former Housing Minister said he would not allow audits, PR stunts and other distractions from government take his attention away from the real issues at hand.
Moonilal added, “I want the Prime Minister and the Attorney General to know that we will not forget and we will not allow those issues at the Ministry of Education to die, but we call upon the authorities to investigate promptly these very serious accusations and allegations of breaches of the criminal law.
“We called upon Dr Rowley to take action when necessary to ensure that the Board members of the EFCL who continue to hold on to office and the Minister of Education are removed forthwith.”
Moonilal said the entire Board, including its former chairman, need to be thoroughly investigated and “let the chips fall where they may”.
“The time for distractions is over,” he said.
