P.S.U. Demands Investigation into Fire Sale of Government Vehicles

The Public Service Union is coming down hard on the previous U.D.P. administration after finding out that a fire sale of government assets, particularly a fleet of vehicles that was being used by former ministers, had taken place back in September. Upon learning of the disposal of these vehicles at rock-bottom prices, as low as two hundred dollars, the P.S.U. wrote to Ruperto Vicente, head of the Assets and Utilities Management Unit, as well as Financial Secretary Joseph Waight requesting an inventory of all the vehicles that have been sold over the past eight years.   The P.S.U. claims it is equally perturbed that costly equipment, including furniture and other electronic items were sold for a pittance to former ministers of government ahead of the November eleventh general elections.  As such, the P.S.U. is demanding an investigation into the disposal of these assets and for the prime minister to hold senior public officers accountable for facilitating the fire sale since it flies in the face of cost saving measures that had been recommended to the Barrow administration.
