Still No Word on Who’s the Next Comptroller of Customs

Ian Haylock

A decision on who will succeed Colin Griffith as the next Comptroller of Customs is yet to be determined by the Ministry of Finance. While senior customs officers Ian Haylock and Estelle Leslie have interviewed for the post, an announcement is pending.  Until then, the Customs and Excise Department’s outgoing head has been granted a one-month extension following the expiration of his contract on December twenty-eighth.  Both candidates are eminently qualified, having entered the public service in the capacity of customs officers in 1988 and then working their way up through the department’s ranks by pursuing advanced studies at the University of the West Indies before earning the three-year requisite experience as deputy comptrollers of customs.  While Griffith’s brief contract extension comes to an end on January twenty-eighth, News Five understands that Leslie’s interview was successful.
