Former Minister of Finance, Karen Nunez-Tesheira

The integrity commission admits it was wrong to refer a matter before it involving former minister of finance Nunez Tesheira to the director of public prosecutions.

In March 2010, the commission launched an investigation into allegations that Nunez Tesheira had breached the integrity in public life act.
The investigation sought to clear whether or not Nunez Tesheira participated in the process of managing the financial crisis involving CL Financial and its subsidiaries while being a shareholder of the group.

The commission subsequently found Mrs. Nunez Tesheira guilty of section 37 (7) of the integrity in public life act and referred the matter to the director of public prosecutions.

But after further probe and questions from Nunez Tesheira lawyers and pointing out that she was questioned in relation to a conflict of interest which would only amount to a breach of the code of conduct which is not a criminal offence under the act, the integrity commission withdrew its findings.

Speaking on the power breakfast morning show on power 102.1fm this morning, Nunez Tesheira said she was issued a formal apology by the commission.

But despite the apology, Mrs. Nunez Tesheira said she has no confidence in the integrity commission.

Mrs. Nunez Tesheira said she was never treated fairly by the commission.

    OK I agree. Don’t have any confidence in integrity commission either.
