The department with the responsibility to manage cases in the country we are told faces serious internal problems and if not quickly fixed, Prime Minister Rt. Hon. Hubert Ingraham would have left the department in a worse state than he met it.
Outside the brewing battle for the Department of Public Prosecutions [DPP] post, now being debated in and outside of Parliament, we have learned that department may collapse to the ground.
“BP, the air-condition in the office of the Attorney General where all this mayhem is taking place right now is a boiler room. It has not been working for weeks and it appears that there is no management, no union and no decision to have it fixed. Could you image this? Workers have fainted, the place is a hot box and the mold is growing in the building every passing hour,” an officer in the OPM told BP.
“I don’t know how much more the workers in that department can take. Could you imagine? The department with responsibility for advising the government on legal matters and which also has the responsibility to manage justice in the country has no Permanent Secretary nor AG who would standup and deal with this tsunami and naked abuse of the officers in the department?”
“But most of all BP, WHERE IN THE HELL IS JOHN PINDER? Das another scatter brain if you ask me.”
Prime Minister Ingraham never mentioned the crisis unfolding in the AG’s office perhaps after becoming overburdened with the decision to hire an expatriate to take up the post of DPP overlooking a Bahamian , Cheryl Grant-Bethell. Ingraham destroys the career of another bright young Bahamian. A daughter of the soil.
Ingraham stood on the floor of the House Wednesday night in a slick way attacked the character of Bethel, suggesting that after information came to him in considering her appointment as DPP he could not support her appointment for “GOOD AND VALID REASONS.”
The Prime Minister has no SHAME! However, something must be wrong in the Bahamas when more than 1,000 lawyers are called to the Bar and not one Bahamian or Non-Bahamian residing in the country can fill the top job. Something ga ta be wrong with that.
Former Bar Council President Wayne Munroe while speaking with reporters yesterday just stopped short of calling the Prime Minister DUMB, STUPID, and the unchristian name given to a donkey. He did say however that Ingraham is ignorant and said; “If he is man he’ll repeat outside the Parliament what he said inside.”
Meanwhile, while all this tit for tat between the PM and Bethell’s attorney occurred before the stage of the wutless media yesterday, the victims in the AG’s office are being attacked as we speak. And they’ve come to BP.
Boy, We NEED CHANGE!
