The PSOJ is satisfied with the appointment of Justice Seymour Panton to the post of Chairman of the Integrity Commission and that the body will now continue its mandate of promoting and strengthening measures for the prevention, detection, investigation and prosecution of acts of corruption. We also look forward to the appointment of Commissioners to fill the vacancies on the Committee created by Justice Panton’s new appointment as well as the retirement of Dirk Harrison who was director of corruption prosecution.

The role of the Integrity Commission is a critical one but will only be effective if any gaps in law or administration that support it are addressed.
