The Premier said, “Early last year I announced Government’s intention to establish a Commission of Inquiry to investigate the findings of the Auditor General’s Report on the Consolidated Fund for the Financial Years 2010, 2011 and 2012.

“Today, I can confirm that late yesterday afternoon [Feb. 28], the Commission of Inquiry provided me a copy of its Final Report into matters arising under Section 3 of the Auditor General’s Report on the Consolidated Fund for the Financial Years 2009/2010, 2010/2011 and 2011/2012.

“Currently, the report is being formatted for public dissemination, and once this is process is completed it will be placed online. The public will be notified accordingly.

“Sir Anthony Evans, in his letter of transmittal dated 28 February 2017, noted that ‘it has been an honour’ for him to serve as Chairman of the Commission and ‘a privilege for all Commissioners to serve the people of Bermuda.’

“The Commission of Inquiry was a very significant undertaking which sought to review, assess, uphold and protect standards of governance that serve the public interest.

“And I wish to thank Sir Anthony and the Commissioners – the Hon John Barritt, JP, Mr. Kumi Bradshaw and Ms. Fiona Luck – for their hard work over the course of the past 12 months, which included public meetings, deliberations and the final writing of this report.

“The Commission of Inquiry report should greatly assist in moving forward with improvements to the public administration of Bermuda.

“It also demonstrates this Government’s commitment to ensuring accountability at all levels to ensure that we maintain global confidence in Bermuda as being a first class, top tier jurisdiction. “

    “being formatted for public dissemination”

    What does this mean? Is this report being edited prior to public release? Just release the report, without meddling with it.

    some folks dont care if you steal from them and their children, as long as the right team dun it.I want to see politicians taken to the matt over theft and i dont care who it is. My grandfather had his battles and my son will have his, but I am responsible for the now and i think turning a blind eye is stupid. If all are innocent then so be it. All the defence I hear so far are long winded conspiricy theories. I wasnt born this size!

      Well said Steve. Regardless of who is in govt, I wish they would “just do the right thing. Period.” My kids and grandkids aren’t going to give a rat’s tail who “dun it” 30 years from now when they are up to their necks in debt from some political party back in the 2000s.

    With the report will come the usual PLP claims of racism and figure pointing for political poly to cast aspersions for the next election. The noise will be endless using the racism card on this one.

    Well black, white, Chinese … a crook is still a crook and a crook that uses their power representing the people should be put in jail.

    Regardless of color you have put all Bermudians to shame. As a elderly black Bermudian female I am disgusted and could only hang my head in shame as they play the race card, jokers.
