Prime Minister Mottley Issues Reminder to Public Servants – Do Government Business Using Official Email!
A statement issued Prime Minister Mia Mottley yesterday piqued
the interest of the blogmaster. During a session labelled, a dialogue between Ministers of Government and a Committee representing Permanent Secretaries and others of a similar grade, Mottley instructed the senior public officers present, ‘… that no business of the Government of Barbados should be conducted on anything other than an official email’.
One immediately wondered why in an enlightened time a Prime Minister from her elevated position, would have seen the need to issue the caution to Permanent Secretaries charged with the responsibility to administration of the Public Service. Clearly the Prime Minister issued the reminder to the senior public servants in difference to the need to be confidential managing the people’s business, she is aware there was a breech or all of the foregoing.
Yesterday’s episode pe the blogmaster’s interest why?
Not too long ago among the voluminous Cahill documents leaked there was an email sent to several prominent individuals in Barbados by Clare Cowan, CEO of Cahill Energy. On the distribution list were the personal email addresses of Ministers Darcy Boyce, Chris Sinckler and David Estwick.
