Corporation chairman detained

Of­fi­cers from the An­ti-Cor­rup­tion In­ves­ti­ga­tions Bu­reau (ACIB) have de­tained Glen Ram, chair­man of the Ma­yaro/Rio Claro Re­gion­al Cor­po­ra­tion, for ques­tion­ing.

A po­lice source from the East­ern Di­vi­sion con­firmed to Guardian Me­dia that charges are ex­pect­ed to be laid for cor­rupt­ly so­lic­it­ing and re­ceiv­ing funds.

A source, who asked not to be named, said po­lice of­fi­cers vis­it­ed the cor­po­ra­tion's of­fices at Ranns Plaza on High Street, Rio Claro, around 10 am and es­cort­ed Ram out of the build­ing.

Con­tact­ed for com­ment, the UNC's Pub­lic Re­la­tions Of­fi­cer, Ani­ta Haynes, said she was still try­ing to clar­i­fy the cir­cum­stances sur­round­ing his Ram's de­ten­tion.
