The Firearm Licensing Authority (FLA) says social media reports making allegations about corruption at the agency are false, malicious and without merit.
The FLA in a statement Thursday afternoon said: “ It has come to our attention that several emails with defamatory and untruthful information about the Firearm Licensing Authority (FLA) have been circulating on social media platforms. The emails, which allege corruption within the agency are said to be from concerned employees, however, investigations show that the senders are neither current nor former FLA staff members. The action of the person(s) responsible is viewed as an offence under the Cyber Crime Act, and has been reported to the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF).”
The FLA says the allegations are malicious and without merit and says anyone with information about the person or persons circulating the report or with knowledge of any corrupt activity taking place at the FLA, to report this information to the Police, the Integrity Commission or the Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency (MOCA).
