St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): At Tuesday’s (Feb 7) Town Hall meeting in Newtown, Attorney General Vincent Byron responding to questions about investigations initiated by the government, made reference to those into the Sugar Industry Diversification Foundation, and the electoral process of the last general election.
While pointing out that some of the findings in the SIDF probe have already been made public, Attorney General Byron said giving an update or providing results in the other investigations would be premature.
“I just want to say very clearly that this government has been having a number of ongoing investigations. We have engaged the international firm Ernst & Young to do an extensive investigation into the SIDF, we’ve had reports on that, we have carried on further investigations and they are also investigations that have been ongoing in relation to questions in the elections and the election process. As with all investigations one would be lapse to declare what those investigations are before they are concluded, but I would say that they are very active and that shortly we’ll start to hear something that is happening. At this point in time it would be irresponsible for us to declare where we are in those investigations" Byron said.
