Waiting on Paria Probe…

WHEN would there be justice in the Paria diving disaster that took four precious lives in late February? 

At our Press time, the much-promised Commission of Enquiry had not yet begun work, and so there is no indication of when a complete probe would be undertaken and recommendations provided. 

In the meantime, the State-owned energy company could oversee yet another calamity in workers’ lives. 

The Rowley Government stands accused of refusing to ensure swift justice and remedial measures and of protecting company bosses

Every other country would have undertaken a swift and comprehensive probe, implemented change and taken appropriate action against negligent leaders. 

But people’s lives remain of little value to the wretched Rowley regime.
