Clement Reid has been sacked as the Port Authority’s director.
On Thursday (29 November) acting Port Authority director Joseph Woods confirmed Mr. Reid’s employment was terminated last Friday (23 November.)
Mr. Reid was suspended back in May on the heels of a damning Auditor General’s report on irregularities at the Authority.
Mr. Wood said the Port Authority will not be commenting further on the matter.
Mr. Reid is the fourth senior government official to exit a high-level post in recent months. The other three are Department of Environmental Health boss Roydell Carter, CINICO boss Lonny Tibbetts and National Roads Authority (NRA) Paul Parchment.
The Port Authority statement reads:
“The Port Authority of the Cayman Islands confirms that, by mutual consent, the employment of the Port Director, Clement Reid, was terminated on 23 November 2018. The Board extends its appreciation to Mr. Reid for his many years of service at the Port Authority. No further statement will be made in relation to this matter.”
