    So our so called minister of finance can’t do this as a finance minister. Another committee, more tax payers $ wasted.

    Be Jingus.

  4. flikel says:

    The Commissioner of Corrections is now a finance expert on money laundering? Does he have a finance background?

  5. Albie says:

    Could someone provide a reason why this individual has been chosen for this position please.

    Is he an accountant or maybe he has a background in finance or maybe law enforcement or is this just the usual shuffling of senior civil servants to new and even more lucaritive posts?

    Cronyism???

    that more like a demotion….. With the state of the Corrections Department and all the drama that is unfolding, it is more like they are trying to give him as grateful an exit as they can…..

  7. wondering says:

    obviously he has spare time to do this and not the Prisons!!!!!!

  8. Oh really says:

    All this current government does is flip flop people from one post to another.or set up a committee. Just what have they accomplished since they took over. Absolutely nothing oh Jea I forgot gave government workers a raise bought new GP cars and travelled. Hmmm very interested to hear the budget and see how they propose to pay down the debt?????They will never accomplish what Bob Richards did in paying off the debt. One day it will come back to haunt the people who voted for them.

      I can hardly wait for this budget too!

      It will be interesting to hear how we are going to fund all this spending that has happened since July 2017. The America’s Cup created a breathing space with it’s ROI. The air is now being sucked up by thoughtless spending which shows no sign of being reined in.

      Plenty of committees and more committees and loads of rhetoric and hot air. All blow and no real action where it is needed!

    Am I missing something here?

  10. Thetruthhurts says:

    Can you please tell me if these guys are attempting to prevent the laundering of money or are looking to catch people…I dont see the police having any part of this and they are the only ones who investigate. This doesn’t sit right. Big headlines not backed with any mention of police. Sounds like a government looking to justify their existence.

  11. Rockfish#1and#2 says:

    Is this appointment someone’s idea of a joke? Or is Lamb being positioned for something else?

    • frank says:

      this guy went from the regiment to prison service with no clue what
      to do now we move him again for nine months give him a few more dollars before he retires he must be either a lodge boy or a frat brother

  12. Consequences says:

    Wow! And his background in finance or even project management is what?? Can we for once make appointments on merit and not favor. If we really want results and integrity, it starts with utilizing those that have the credentials, successful experiences and most importantly have earned consideration through stellar works. Nothing has changed with this PLP government.
