By Aaron Humes: Barely a year after its formation, the Commission of Inquiry to investigate the sale of Government assets between the period of October 2019 to November 2020 is making its final report to the Government.
Commissioners Andrew Marshalleck, Luke Martinez, and Marcelo Blake hosted public hearings in which multiple witnesses, including former Prime Minister Dean Barrow and former Minister of Natural Resources Hugo Patt detailed transactions involving government vehicles, including that Toyota Tacoma that Patt asked for but ultimately didn’t get.
It was halted after the trade unions’ dispute with the Government over salary cuts and on Friday, Chairman Marshalleck surprisingly confirmed to Channel 7 News that a final report has been written and was submitted as of Friday to the Cabinet Secretary for eventual public dissemination.
The written report according to Marshalleck numbers just 25 pages but it is accompanied by a video recording on a flash drive.
Without going into much detail, Marshalleck indicated that the findings are clear and have been from the beginning – the Commission, he repeated, was not about conviction but about recommendation about what is to be done about the issue.
