By BBN Staff: The Senate Select Committee tasked with investigating irregularities reported in the Auditor General’s Special Audit into Passport, Nationality and Visa departments begins hearings today.
Auditor general Dorothy Bradley and her team of auditors are expected to appear before the Committee today.
Thirteen former and current UDP Cabinet Ministers were named in the Auditor General’s special report.
During the period mentioned, an estimated 55,000 immigration documents were reportedly issued with major irregularities.
While Government senator Aldo Salazar has been elected the committee’s chairman and the PUP has named its representative, Eamon Courtney, the Chamber of Commerce is yet to announce if its Senator, Mark Lizarraga will participate in the hearings.
