Recusal from FTC hearing
Fair Trading Commission (FTC) chairman Tammy Bryan will be playing no further part in the Barbados Light & Power Company Limited’s (BL&P) rate review process.
The attorney at law announced this in a statement yesterday in which she said the FTC’s deputy chairman, Dr Donley Carrington, “will now chair the panel hearing the application for the review of rates”.
Bryan said that as the regulator moved towards the various hearings and conferences in the application for the review of rates by BL&P, “certain information has come to light which caused the FTC and myself to seek legal advice”.
Recent information circulated on social media suggested there could be a direct or indirect conflict of interest in the rate review process arising from the close professional relationships of some parties involved. (SC)
