Tuesday October 27, 2009 –  Prime Minister Honourable Stephenson King has stated that  recommendations emanating from the Commission of Enquiry Report will be fully implemented.


The comment was issued by  on Tuesday,  at the House of Assembly, as he tabled the contents of the report compiled recently by a Commission of Enquiry.


Prime Minister King spoke to the Rochamel matter and the management of the National Conservation Authority (NCA), along with the Road Development Programmes, one and two.


"The management of the  National Conservation Authority  (NCA), disclosed gross irregularities in the conduct of the affairs of that authority, and that  offences   appear to have been committed with the expenditure of public funds entrusted to that authority. 


“In addition, the contract for $43,750,000.00 which was signed to meet the cost of the road development projects  001 and 002  eventually cost the government more than 100 percent above the contract price, resulting in significant loss to the government and people of  Saint Lucia,” the prime minister said.


The Commissioners who conducted the inquiry were Sir Fenton Ramsahoye, Mustapha, Ibrahim and John Reginald, Phelps, Dumas.


The Inquiry was conducted from February through to April of 2009.
