A prerss release from the PNP today said the vigil is the first in a series of events across the island to bring awareness to the brazen plundering of the public purse by members of the political executive and their operatives, who are yet to be brought to book.
The PNP, through its Parliamentary groups and committees, has exposed the wanton corruption in various ministries and agencies, including the Ministry of Science, Energy and Technology, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of National Security and the Caribbean Maritime University, Petrojam, USF, NESoL, the UDC and through projects such as the $800 million de-bushing programme, the $230 million purchase of used cars for the police that are yet to be delivered in full.
The Party says all well thinking Jamaicans must be horrified at the wanton waste of taxpayers’ money and the fact that no one is arrested and charged for any of these breaches.
The first vigil this Thursday is expected to see persons from Region 3 of the party’s organisation decrying the system of corruption which has gripped this government.
