CLICO solution – restructure

A number of parliamentarians have already declared their investments in CLICO. With this in mind, would it not be a conflict of interest if the same parliamentarians are the ones to determine the Government’s action regarding CLICO?
And would it be fair to the majority of taxpayers in Barbados if they are called on to foot the massive bill to repay Barbadians who took it upon themselves to invest in CLICO?
Would those investors have been willing to share their profits with taxpayers had CLICO not fallen on hard times?

The Barbados Teachers’ Credit Union successfully did it before – why not CLICO?
