Finance Minister Dr Nigel Clarke says he shares the profound level of anger and disgust expressed by Jamaicans at the alleged multimillion-dollar fraud that has been uncovered at investment firm Stocks and Securities Limited (SSL).

In a statement today, Clarke characterised the situation as alarming and evil.

Last week, SSL disclosed that several of its clients were allegedly fleeced of millions of dollars in local and foreign currencies given to the firm to invest.

Among them is sprint legend Usain Bolt, who has indicated through his lawyer that he had a balance of J$2 billion or US$12.7 million at SSL as at October 31, 2022.
