2016 Financial Statement of the Barbados Bar Association – A Matter of Public Interest
BU is of the view the 2016 Financial Statement of the Barbados Bar Association (BA) is of public interest for two key reasons. There is sufficient cash generated from membership fees to fund the recruitment of a senior clerk to assist with trying to improve service delivery to the public. Then there is the matter of the stagnant Compensation Fund BU has written about several times. It appears that the fund is used only to feed the coffers of the Nation newspaper yet clients who are abused by dishonest lawyers continue to NOT have access to money collecting in the Fund.
