Prosecute those responsible for negligence

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Dear Sir,

Having read the Auditor-General's report on negligence in the Civil Service, my advice to her is to send a copy of her report to the Governor and the Director of Public Prosecutions, with a cover letter recommending that those responsible for these actions be prosecuted to the full extent of the law; fined and imprisoned if convicted, and personal assets seized.

If the DPP and the Governor fail to act on concrete evidence presented by the Auditor, they are as guilty as the people who committed these acts at the expense of the taxpayer. If this goes unchecked, it is open season for those irresponsible people to do it again and encourage others to try it.

ONCE AGAIN OBSERVER, Sandys
