The financial?problems affecting the University of the West Indies have trickled down to the UWI?Open Campus programme.
Reports indicate that the Open Campus which operates in 16 nations is owed millions by contributing countries and, as a result, is struggling to pay its bills.
The major defaulters, according to a source, were the Eastern Caribbean countries which were feeling the brunt of the economic downturn.
So serious has the situation become that on December 19, Open Campus staff were issued letters informing them that their salaries would be one to two days late.
