Blu punishment doesn’t fit crime
I am appalled that the Government decided to shut down Blu Bar and Grill Restaurant for 14 days after the private party there given by Wayne Caines, the Minister of National Security, and Zane DeSilva, the Minister of Tourism and Transport.
Both ministers were asked to resign their posts by the Premier. However, why punish the owners and staff at Blu as well?
Do you think the Blu staff are in some way responsible for this fiasco? They were just doing their job. If the staff at Blu had the temerity to actually demand that both Mr Caines and Mr DeSilva should abide by the Government's rules regarding Covid-19, we all know what the consequences would have been for them.
It was a bad decision to close Blu and punish the staff, who have suffered enough during the lockdown. I sincerely hope that the Premier will rethink this decision and allow Blu to reopen immediately.
