In a release issued yesterday, the PSOJ and JAMP say the anticipate that the selection of Mr. Christie for this role will positively contribute to the increased effectiveness of the country’s premier anti-corruption agency.

They also advanced that Mr Christie’s reputation, his demonstrated tenacity and competence make him a suitable selection for the role of Integrity Commission boss.

The PSOJ and JAMP are also describing the appointment of a permanent Executive Director at the Integrity Commission as a positive development.
