Two anti-corruption watchdogs say they’re ok with the Integrity Commission taking as much time as they need to fully examine the Prime Minister’s statutory declarations of his assets and liabilities.
Executive Director of National Integrity Action, NIA, Professor Trevor Munroe, says there’s no time limit on the Commission’s work.
He says the Commission has to be very careful in their investigations.
Meanwhile, Executive Director of the Jamaica Accountability Metre Portal, Jeanette Calder, says the Commission should take all the time it needs.
She and Professor Munroe were speaking on Nationwide This Morning with Kalilah Reynolds and Patria Kaye Aarons.
The Integrity Commission has come under fire recently, for an apparent delay in publishing a summary of the Prime Minister’s statutory declarations.
Opposition leader, Dr. Peter Phillips, has said he would take the Commission to court if there is a further delay with the publication.
