Transparency Activist, Kirk Waithe, says there are important questions over the Government’s handling of the Daryl Smith sexual harassment issue.
Mr. Smith is accused of allegedly making sexual advances toward a Ministry of Sport employee during his time as Minister. Reports indicate that his accuser was paid $150,000 dollars by the Ministry shortly after leaving her position.
Mr. Smith was fired as a Minister after the scandal became publicized. Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley at the time said a committee had been set up to investigate the matter and produce a report. However speaking last week, he explained that the report was unusable as the committee failed to speak with Mr. Smith as part of their investigation.
Speaking on the Power Breakfast Show, Mr. Waithe questioned the honesty of the Prime Minister’s comments on the issue.
He claims his sources indicate that Mr. Smith did indeed meet with the committee set up to investigate the allegations.
