GOB is Yet to Adopt Recommendations in Commission’s Report

Andrew Marshalleck

Attorney Naima Barrow failed to convince the bench that a court order restricting government from implementing the recommendation of the commission was indeed necessary.  Despite Justice Shoman setting aside that application, Chairman Andrew Marshalleck says that government is yet to adopt the recommendations put forward in the commission’s report.

“Mr. Barrow also sought an injunction restraining the government from acting upon the recommendations of the committee or in any way acting on the report.  That was also refused, so the government is free to act in relation to the matter.  The result of it is this, there were recommendations for certain reforms, certain amendments to the Finance and Audit Reform Act in order to prevent the kinds of things that we saw in relation to the sale of motor vehicles from ever happening again.  We think those are good proposals and we still urge that they be adopted to prevent the kinds of things we witnessed in relation to sales, ever repeating itself again. They have not yet been adopted but we still urge that they do.”
