What Happens to the Investigation on Corruption at Lands?

Auditor General Bradley was the key person behind a number of audits, but one in particular for which she expressed frustration was an audit at the Ministry of Natural Resources, which has over the years been aptly referred to as a hotbed of corruption. It is believed that millions upon millions of dollars in compensation had been issued through a scheme where duplicate titles for properties were issued for a pittance and then G.O.B. would have to repay at market value. The audit is incomplete and Minister Usher shared his thoughts on the unfinished work.

“You are absolutely right, there are so many audits that need to be completed and it was unfortunate that we weren’t able to give her the resources, the human resources that she has been asking for some time now, for years. But certainly from when I became Minister of Public Service, she and I have met and she was saying minister I need some help to finish these audits. So the office is still working on it. I know up to her last days in office, she was giving instructions, working on some of the audits and making sure that they can be completed because as you said, it is critical that these audits are completed.”
