A third senior official of the state-owned  National Communications Network (NCN) has been sent packing in as many years  after she was implicated in wrongdoing at the radio and television outfit.

Chief Executive Officer, Molly Hassan, when contacted by Demerara Waves Online News,  would only confirm that the Administrative Manager’s  “evaluation was done and she was unsuccessful.”

She was sent packing on Tuesday.

The Administrative Manager was working in other positions with the company for almost two years prior to taking up her new post during the Michael Gordon’s tenure as acting Chief Executive Officer. She was placed on further probation at the end of the first period that last from January to March, 2014.

Asked to comment on reports that a number of NCN’s property was recovered from the woman’s home a Diamond,  East Bank Demerara,  Hassan would only say  “that is an employee-employer discussion. Whatever it was, it was between the employee and the employer.”

Usually reliable sources confirmed that a garden hose, poison and office supplies were found at the woman’s home following an internal probe that included statements from other NCN employees and the security personnel.

NCN’s then Chief Executive Officer, Mohammed ‘Fuzzy’ Sattaur resigned following an independent audit whose findings are yet to be made public by the Office of the President. Programme Manager, Martin Goolsarran was initially sent on leave during a probe and he never returned to NCN.
