CONDEMNATION AND CONCERN continued to be expressed yesterday over the Governor of the Central Bank of Barbados Dr Delisle Worrell’s ban of the NATION from attending any of his Press conferences or other media events at that institution.
Leading private sector executives and a senior journalist questioned the action and appealed for a mending of the fences between the parties.
And, as if sensing the outcry over its decision, the bank issued a statement seeking to clarify its position by stating that since the NATION would still receive timely information, the bank “has not banned the Nation Corporation” as such.
The bank stated: “The front page of the SUNDAY SUN of May 11 carried the headline Cut Off. The bank assures media practitioners in Barbados as well as the public at large that it will continue to keep all media houses fully abreast of all developments on economic and other pertinent matters which fall under its purview, including the Nation Publishing Company, as is normal.
