ATTORNEY GENERAL Adriel Brathwaite says he is only calling a spade a spade when he travels around the country and notices how dirty a society Barbados has become.

And he wants to see some people being arrested, charged with illegal dumping and their pictures placed on the major pages of newspapers showing the country is serious about getting it right when it comes to illegal dumping.

“Something has gone wrong in the country. We’ve become a very dirty country. We have to take immediate ownership of our environs,” Brathwaite told the House of Assembly on Tuesday night while speaking on a supplementary of $6 million for the Sanitation Service Authority (SSA) for payment of wages and salaries.

The MP for St Philip South said Barbadians needed to get back to basics when it came to the environment.
