De Peiza calls for transparency
It is time for straight talk says Democratic Labour Party (DLP) President Verla De Peiza as she again challenged the Government’s handling of the latest crisis with the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Our frontline workers are overstretched and in need of physical and mental breaks, affected persons and their families are worried, the country at large is nervous and not comforted by words alone. The time for smoke screens and long talk has long passed. This is the time for straight talk. Let the people know the answers to the questions that they are asking,” De Peiza stated in a press release yesterday.
She said while Prime Minister Mia Mottley initially dismissed some of the information circulating from unofficial sources it turned out that information was true.
“It’s been revealed that the Barbados Prison Service, The Royal Barbados Police Force, members of the Ambulance Service and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital all have persons who have tested positive for COVID-19,” she said. (PR/AC)
