By Aaron Humes: Commissioner Luis Martinez and former Prime Minister Dean Barrow tangled over the former’s characterization of the sale of vehicles as a “gift.”

He reiterated that the sales of vehicles included payment of duty and proper valuation and concluded that it would have been “churlish” and “mean-spirited” to deny those sales.

Barrow also maintained that he knew nothing of the laptop sales and justified the Peyrefitte sale on the basis of the customization of said furniture, with which Martinez strongly disagreed.

And he insisted that while he was not specifically told of the sale, the Financial Secretary answers to the public, and the Auditor General within the Government.

“I will not throw any shade on the Financial Secretary…I do not fault him; I do not criticize him. It would have been better if he had brought these things to me, and I will tell you: if he had, I would have approved,” Barrow concluded.
