AG shares vision


Share post:

Government is determined to be even more transparent with the masses by giving them access to public information, but a more agile Public Service is needed for the plan to be realised, while consideration for court proceedings to be recorded for public consumption needs consultation to ensure the accused get a fair trial.

These were Attorney General Dale Marshall’s conclusions on Sunday night as the featured speaker at the Barbados Association of Journalists and Media Workers’ (BARJAM) Awards of Excellence ceremony to honour the work of the media fraternity at Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre, Two Mile Hill, St Michael.

As he noted the role of the media as agents of the people in ensuring the masses were kept fully informed, he reiterated the administration’s manifesto promise to be transparent, saying: “My party commits to restoring Barbados’ reputation for fairness and transparency and to pursue genuine transformation by, among other things, introducing a Freedom of Information Act to release to the public all information not restricted on the grounds of national security, personal privacy or commercial sensitivity.”  (SNR)
