Declare assets!


Share post:

FORMER PRIME MINISTER Owen Arthur has already declared his finances to the country.  Now he wants every minister of Government  to do the same.
The former Prime Minister claimed last night that ministerial impropriety was at a high in Barbados and privatization, where workers were allowed to share in ownership of state entities, was the only way to prevent corruption  in Government.
“They [the Democratic Labour Party] said before the last election they would do it [declare assets]. They said there would be transparency. Now is the time to do it,” Arthur said during  a Barbados Labour Party Christ Church  East branch meeting at the St Christopher Primary School.
“Bring it to account. I want to know what  they had then, what they have now, and how they got it,” Arthur told the gathering.
