Urvashi Tiwari-Roopnarine speaks to a Greenvale resident.
Two voice recordings have emerged, purporting to be a Housing Development Corporation (HDC) employee and the tenant who was evicted from a HDC development in Greenvale for illegal occupation of a home.
Yesterday the HDC said it had launched a probe into claims that an employee illegally gave a house to a family without the proper procedures being followed.
The family was evicted last week.
On one of the voice recordings the voice of a man, who believed to be the HDC employee, and that of a woman, the tenant, can be heard discussing the matter.
Residents of Greenvale Park who were adversely affected by flooding, can now visit the HDC’s newly-established Recovery Service Centre for additional support and assistance as they recover and rehabilitate their homes, the HDC said in a statement today.
It said this centre, which formally opened today, will be operational every day from 7 am to 7 pm in the first instance.
At this centre, teams from the HDC will be present to treat with issues related to mortgages and rentals, schedule of repairs of impacted units and general recovery and rehabilitation efforts.
