The GuyOil kickback probe

Dear Editor,

Reference is made to “GuyOil Board, Staff to be Sacked”. So the Finance Controller and a Director of the Board have been sent home for negotiating with the owner of Aaron Royalty, the company linked to the scam. Didn’t the Chairman, Paul Cheong sent the two to negotiate with Aron? Did the Board inform Minister Ashni Singh that the Chair sent the two men to negotiate with Aron? Why is the Chair retained at his post? Shouldn’t he also be sent home? Am I missing something? And Cheong has now been promoted as Chair of PSC. Something is definitely wrong. Will the nation accept this injustice and what passes for business leadership? Will we ever have honest leadership?

Worse, it is reported that Aron has been arrested and charged for reporting the demand of a bribe and for turning over recorded evidence of those implicated to the police. So let’s understand what is happening! Aron provided evidence of what appeared to be a demand for a bribe for a contract. That is a crime. And the complainant is being charged for making the complaint of corruption. This is classic twisted logic!

Someone is being protected at GuyOil. A crime was being committed at GuyOil. There was not an auditing problem to call in the Auditor General. An audit is not the answer. A criminal investigation is required into who instructed the two men to negotiate with Aron and why. The Auditor general is not a fraud crime investigator. I thought this government would be different from its predecessor. Will anything ever change in our country? It is hopeless!
