He pointed to the $600 million de-bushing scandal, the $8 million phone bill scandal that engulfed former Finance Minister, Audley Shaw; the police used car scandal, the Petrojam scandal, among others.
“The Government has more scandal than you have scandal bags inna Riverton City (landfill),” the Opposition Leader remarked.
“And then we have the super scandal, the Petrojam scandal. That one has everything in it. It’s like all the other scandals in one.”
But Prime Minister Andrew Holness, in response to Phillips, turned the table on the Opposition leader and went a step further in accusing the PNP of being the most corrupt political organisation in the Caribbean. Speaking at a JLP Area Council Two meeting in Old Harbour on Sunday night, he supported his allegation with a string of scandals which rocked PNP administrations of the past, including the Shell waiver, Finsac and Trafigura scandals.
