The Special Audit of the Transport Board by the Auditor General will be handed over to the police this week for them to determine if it is worthy of further investigation.

This was revealed by Transport Board chairman Ian Gooding-Edghill yesterday, in response to reports that the board had called in the police on the matter.

Furthermore, the chairman said the board would be launching an investigation into the missing bus that was also highlighted in the Auditor General’s Report.   (SP)
