Opposition Leader Weighs in On Civil Asset Recovery and Unexplained Wealth Bill

Moses “Shyne” Barrow

Opposition Leader Shyne Barrow also weighed in on the bill. We heard from Barrow outside the National Assembly on Friday. One of his main objections to the bill has to do with the time limit placed on retroactivity of the proposed legislation.

“I just wanted to make clear that some of the issues we have is that they propose a twelve year retroactive language in there. Regionally it is twenty years. In developed nations globally there is no limit to retroactivity, to going back. So, if we are serious about fixing the problem, to hold everyone accountable, then the years to go back should be at least twenty years, with an additional five years for the FIU to look that far back so that we can hold both governments accountable.”
