Executive Director of the National Integrity Action (NIA) Professor Trevor Munroe, is calling on Prime Minister Andrew Holness to use the crisis at Petrojam as an opportunity to implement much-needed systems of accountability and good governance at the state-owned oil refinery.
He was speaking at a monthly meeting of the Kiwanis Club of North St Andrew at the Police Officer’s Club on Hope Road today.
The NIA boss says many of the internal weaknesses being highlighted during the scandal rocking Petrojam were cited in previous Auditor General reports spanning successive administrations.
Meanwhile, Professor Munroe says in a letter he wrote to Prime Minister Andrew Holness also highlights the need for greater sanctions to be ascribed to laws of corporate governance.
He’s suggesting that the main laws relating to governance be combined.
Professor Munroe is also demanding an update on other matters of alleged corruption which have recently surfaced.
