By Aaron Humes: During Tuesday’s usual Cabinet session, it was decided to launch a full investigation into the “sell-off” of government assets by the previous administration. 

A statement from the National Assembly reports: “The inquiry will include representatives from the Ministry of Finance, the Attorney General’s Ministry, the Ministry of the Public Service and representatives from the Public Service Union and the private sector. 

The Public Service Union initiated events with a public complaint that it had failed to get from the manager of the Assets and Utilities Management Unit, Ruperto Vicente, a list of Government vehicles being used as assets in the service. It alleged that these vehicles were sold for sums smaller than market value to cronies and others without being properly audited by the Auditor General’s office among others. 

An example we reported on this week was a Toyota Prado initially belonging to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs being sold for $12,500 contingent only on a change of title and a handshake agreement. The PSU had further stated that these vehicles and other assets were being used for election-related work.
