LOO Faber Criticizes Fifteen Million-Dollar Blue Bond Legal Fees

Patrick Faber

And, on the issue of corruption, Leader of the Opposition Patrick Faber called for transparency in the payment of legal fees brought on by the Blue Bond Agreement.  A recently tabled 2021/2022 supplementary budget allocation brought before the House of Representatives called for the approval of fifteen million dollars to be paid in legal fees as a part of the agreement.  According to Faber, little to no information has been given about who will receive this payment. 


Patrick Faber, Leader of the Opposition

“Despite the fact that all the heavy lifting was done already, or as my colleague, the Chairman of the Party and our lead senator in the Senate put it, they woke up on third base and no work had to be done. Then explain to us Mr. Prime Minister, if it is not corruption or something you feel the need to hide, and we did ask the question in the honorable House. I am not sure if it was asked in the Senate. But I believe because you cover all grounds Mike that you asked again. What the hell is the fifteen million dollars for, and who is going to collect that fifteen million dollars?”
