The one hundred and twelve vehicles, furniture and electronics are not the only government assets that were sold off prior to the Dean Barrow administration leaving office. The Commission of Inquiry also found that even heads of cattle were sold.
SC Andrew Marshalleck, Commission of Inquiry Chairman: “There were also reports provided to us regarding the sale of livestock and that wasn’t significant. This is the program at Central Farm for the selling of live animals to farmers, again they had rules and there are good rules for determining how the price should be fixed but they don’t really address the process by which the purchaser is selected so the weakness lies there and we’ve suggested that those be done by public actions going forward. But it’s for those responsible to devise a weight that complies with provisions of the Finance and Audit Reform Act so it was mainly to bring to the attention that while you said the policy as to how the program is through operate the sales of government assets must still comply with the Finance and Audit Reform Act so you need to look at your processes to make sure that they comply.”
