The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions is still waiting for the police investigation file in the case of the amusement ride incident that happened in June last year.

The ODPP says the Ministry of Employment, Productivity and Industrial Relations conducted their investigation and submitted their findings with proposed charges to them on 18th December 2023.

They say after a comprehensive analysis of the file, the ODPP sent a letter to the Director CID and the Ministry on 4th January 2024, with recommendations that the police complete their parallel investigation and submit the file for further analysis of all the evidence.

They add that while the decision on any potential charges rests with the ODPP, the ODPP has not yet received any corresponding file from the police in respect to their side of the investigation.

The Office says they are currently waiting for a full police report and completed investigation.

They say once they receive the police file, they will then be able to make a decision on any potential charges.

A 21-year-old woman had passed away and 2 others were admitted in serious condition in hospital after the tragic incident.
