Ruperto Vicente Gone From the Public Service

And finally, on the inquiry report; there was one man at the center of all the vehicle sales; that is Ruperto Vicente who once headed the Vehicle Care Unit. We asked Minister of Public Service, Henry Charles if Vicente remains in the public service.

Herny Charles Usher, Minister of Public Service: Well he’s no longer there I don’t know what he’s doing right now but you bring up a good point because it shouldn’t be within the discretion of the head of the vehicle care unit to decide whether a vehicle is serviceable or not, whether it’s a write off or not, even after getting one mechanic to look ahead it it has to be drawn through an independent process that determine what is needed for that particular vehicle and I think that’s where we have to tighten up the regulations, we have to modernize the stores order. This stores order from the 60s I believe and those regulations might be too old for today’s public service so we have to bring them up to date put more teeth into them so that if you violate them there are more consequences.” 

Reporter: Was he fired from public service? 

Herny Charles Usher, Minister of Public Service: Well he’s no longer there.” 

Reporter: Was he fired? 

Herny Charles Usher, Minister of Public Service: He’s no longer there.” 

Reporter: Did he resign? 

Herny Charles Usher, Minister of Public Service:  You know there’s a new head of the vehicle care unit and Mr Vicente is as far as I know in private life now.”
