Several high-profile investigations are expected to be finalised this week by the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
The Sunday Guardian understands that DPP Roger Gaspard is expected to deliver his determination on the investigations of former People's Partnership planning minister Mary King, former People's National Movement (PNM) finance minister Karen Nunez-Tesheira and former community development and culture minister Joan Yuille-Williams.
King's matter has been before the Integrity Commission and then the DPP's office since she was fired by Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar in 2011, after awarding a $100,000 contract to Ixanos Limited, a company in which King and her husband, Dr St Clair King, are the main shareholders.
King was fired from Government after serving just under a year when it was revealed that the contract was awarded without the proper tendering process.
It was King who wrote to the Integrity Commission in a bid to clear her name in 2011 and the investigations have continued since then.
While there is little information coming out of the DPP's office, people with knowledge of the case say they expect King to be cleared, although initially there was believed to be strong evidence in a sworn affidavit by King's former permanent secretary.
In the Nunez-Tesheira case, the Sunday Guardian understands that the investigative file has been sent to the DPP's office since 2011 but needs more work and may be resubmitted to the Integrity Commission for further peripheral investigations.
In 2009, the former finance minister withdrew her money from the now defunct CLICO Investment Bank (CIB), which was a subsidiary of the collapsed CL Financial conglomerate. It was reported back in 2011 that People's Partnership Food Production Minister Devant Maharaj wrote to the Integrity Commission requesting an investigation into Nunez-Tesheira's actions. He alleged she, as then minister of finance, improperly used her knowledge of Clico's adverse situation to her benefit.
