The Opposition Spokesman on Agriculture alleged in Parliament two weeks ago Graham was fired by the portfolio Minister for ‘disobeying his instructions’ in relation to the issuing of a license for the importation of milk powder from Colombia.

Dr. Dayton Campbell said Mr. Graham received a dismissal letter on May 5 from the Dairy Development Board.

However, Minister Samuda says it was the Board that chose not to renew Mr. Graham’s employment contract.

In the meantime…The President of the Civil Service Association says he welcomes the investigations by the OCG into the operations of the Dairy Board.
