Ministry Accountant On Six Fraud Charges

An accountant employed with the Ministry of Youth Development and National Service was charged with six counts of misbehaviour in public office on Wednesday.

Forty year old Davica Roop-Boodoo, who has 18 years of service with the Government, was granted bail in the sum of $200,000 with a surety.

Roop-Boodoo allegedly made unauthorised requests for travel to New York in the months of August and September 2021 from a travel agency utilised by the Ministry.

The travel and accommodation amounted to $94,000 for several persons.

The requests were found to be fraudulent after a direct inquiry was made by the travel agency to the Ministry after several failed attempts to receive payments.
