Ombudsman Rejects Leader of the Opposition’s Request for Investigation into Definitive Agreement

It has been seven weeks since the Leader of the Opposition, Moses Shyne Barrow wrote to Ombudsman, Retired Major Gilbert Swazo requesting an investigation into what Barrow refers to as the government’s attempt to have Cabinet approve the Definitive Agreement.  Ombudsman Swazo responded to the opposition leader on Monday, July 10, rejecting his request on the grounds that, he (Barrow) failed to establish any of the two grounds that would essentially trigger an investigation.  In his letter, Barrow cited basis of his allegation of corruption against the Government, but Ombudsman Swazo noted that none of the evidence submitted proves any corruption or wrongdoing was carried out.  In the end, the Office of the Ombudsman declared that was no reasonable cause established, and that Barrow’s complaint was trivial.
