GOVERNMENT HAS PAID more than $1 million to two senior public officers who did not drive a stroke for up to seven years.

The two had been sent on special leave, but continued to earn their salaries.

In what a trade unionist has described as “a coward’s way out” of dealing with matters head-on, the Freundel Stuart administration has paid former Commissioner of Inland Revenue, Sabina Walcott-Denny, her annual salary, excluding allowances, of $135 024, or a total of $540 096 over the four years she has not worked.

Former acting Supervisor of Insurance, Vernese Brathwaite, who has been on leave for seven years, is being paid her annual salary of $98 087, or $686 609.  (MB)
