Nasley Somerville A No-show At PSC Hearing

Nasley Sommerville

Nasley Sommerville, the former administrator of the Southern Regional Hospital, was a no show at a scheduled Public Services Commission hearing today in Belmopan. Sommerville was named prominently in an audit of the Southern Region which pointed to the misappropriation of over three hundred and seventy thousand dollars.  It is alleged that Sommerville, over the course of two years, made unrestricted use of funds in the hospital’s Maternal and Child Health account. The audit report was very specific, and a check of our archives revealed that the investigation has been ongoing since July 2013, with the participation of the Financial Intelligence Unit and the Police. A check of our records also shows that at least three times since 2013, C.E.O. in the Ministry of Health, Peter Allen, has told the media that he has been calling the Police for an update, but was unable to contact them. While Sommerville has somehow managed to escape criminal liability, at least since July 2013, she has also managed to evade the Public Serves Commission, the body which dispenses judgment on public officers accused of misconduct. Today was the day scheduled for the hearing, and News Five has confirmed that up to Monday evening, Sommerville had confirmed that she would be attending. But she didn’t. We are informed that because she was a no-show the hearing has been adjourned, but we have been able to confirm the adjournment date.

    And another one jumps bail, and another one gone. Gawd, this is so funny. First we have the Muslim freaks that beat up each other in Hattieville; then we have the drug pushing granny, and now we have the bail jumper.

    She was on bail, wasn’t she? Oh, someone forgot to arrest her, so there was no bail.

    This government is a circus. The Ali BaBa-rrow circus and its forty thieves. Funny. Funny.

    Where is the Audit department? What happened to the checks and balances that’s supposed to be in place for the control of public expenditure?(COPE) Are the financial orders (FO) adhered to anymore?
    It is glaringly apparent that there is a total breakdown in the entire state of affairs in the country. From top to bottom, it’s a free for all!
