Licence stickers have disappeared from the Transport Department at Union, Castries, prompting a Police investigation.
Confirmation came Wednesday night from Transport Minister, Guy Joseph.
Joseph gave the confirmation during Newsmaker Live on DBS Television.
“According to the report we have received, 32 stickers went missing from the department over the weekend,” the Minister told Newsmaker Live Host, Timothy Poleon.
He said according to a preliminary report he obtained, there was some deep cleaning being done at the Ministry during the weekend.
Joseph explained that when the staff returned on Monday morning they discovered that the vehicle stickers were missing.
But he made clear that it cannot be said that any particular individuals are responsible.
“Yes, you had the deep cleaning taking place, but you also had a lot of people up and down in the Ministry – staff and different persons,” Joseph asserted.
“I don’t want to jump to conclusions, I don’t want people to go and say ‘It’s the deep cleaning company’, they may be quite innocent,” the Minister declared.
He told Newsmaker Live that the police are questioning a number of people.
The Minister warned members of the public that anyone who is found with the missing stickers will face the penalty.
The stickers are evidence of of a vehicle’s road worthiness, insurance, registration and licensing.
They must be displayed in the lower left corner of the front windscreen and are valid for one year.
The stickers are obtained after the presentation of a valid insurance cover note and inspection from an approved garage.
