Internal Audit conducted at K.H.M.H. on purchase of 2 vans

News Five has reported extensively on two comprehensive audits which point to large-scale financial irregularities and misuse of public funds – one for the Southern Regional Hospital and the other for the Central Health Region. There’s also the matter of two ongoing disputes at the Ministry of Health – one between Health C.E.O., Peter Allen, and the Pharmacy Association, and the other between Allen and the Nurses’ Association. And it’s not done yet. Late last week, News Five received reports of an internal audit being conducted at the K.H.M.H. That audit is looking closely at the purchase of two passenger vans, orchestrated by K.H.M.H. Director of Finance, Carlos Perrera. A credible source has confirmed that both Perrera and the hospital’s acting Manager of Operations, Timothy Seguro, travelled to Fort Lauderdale to inspect those vans, which allegedly cost the K.H.M.H. one hundred thousand dollars.

Why would two upper level managers travel to the US to inspect vehicles being purchased? Well, that’s one of the questions being asked by the audit team commissioned by the Board of Directors last week. We are told that the Board is extremely concerned about the purchase and determined to find out if indeed the K.H.M.H. got value for money. This isn’t the first time that Perrera has come under intense scrutiny for matters of a financial nature. Several weeks ago, under pressure from the Board, Perera announced to the management team that he would be resigning. Today, we understand his resignation has still not been officially tendered. The K.H.M.H. internal audit will be completed this Thursday.

    Little does he know that when the real evidence comes up how fast his ‘boss’ will throw him under the bus, or rather the 12 seater bus.
