Immigration: Were There Cabinet Reports?

Updated: May 15, 2017

Last Wednesday Elvin Penner appeared before the Senate Special Select Committee as the probe into the Auditor General’s report continues for the sixth month.  One of the statements made by the former Minister of State for Immigration is that there were monthly reports to the Cabinet when it came to ministerial intervention on visas.  This is a strong statement lending to the strong public suspicion that the Government ministers were all involved in these irregularities happening at the Immigration Department.  Prime Minister Dean Barrow, however, told the media on Friday that he does not recall those reports.
