A new twist in the email gate investigation has now resulted in the official resignation of a second member of the commission: Deputy Chairman of the Integrity Commission, Justice Sebastian Ventour.
Justice Ventour submitted his letter of resignation coming shortly after the resignation of another commission member, Dr Shelly-Ann Lalchan.
Speaking with reporters yesterday, Justice Ventour said the probe which was being conducted by the commission was terminated prematurely and did not get to the real substance of the investigation into email gate. He said the very press release that was issued to the public on the commission’s findings was incorrect.
Justice Ventour also said he was surprised that such a conclusion could have been made having regard to the scope of the email gate investigation.
Meanwhile we were also told that President Anthony Carmona will be making a statement on the Integrity Commissioner's resignation today.
