?A team of police officers, assigned to the Anti-Corruption and Investigations Bureau, are preparing to travel to Malaysia to probe allegations against former executive chairman of Udecott Calder Hart. In Malaysia, the detectives would seek to obtain certain documents relating to Hart's wife Sherrine. A source at the ACIB said head of the unit, Senior Supt Terry Young, would select no more than four investigators to travel to Malaysia where the probe would officially begin. Yesterday, Young confirmed officers were being sent to Malaysia. When asked when the officers would leave Trinidad, he said: "Very soon, very soon. We are looking to send them as soon as possible."
Last week, the Congress of the People presented documents which claimed Hart had family links with directors of CH Development, now called Sunway – a company which was awarded a $368.9 million contract by Udecott to construct the Legal Affairs Towers in Port-of-Spain. The ACIB officers were called in hours after Director of Public Prosecutions, Roger Gaspard, advised acting Police Commissioner James Philbert the police should probe allegations made against the Harts.
