Another member of the Integrity in Public Office Commission (IPO) has been officially sworn into office.
Attorney Henry Babbs Dyer, the Dominica Bar Association’s nominee to the Integrity in Public Office Commission, was sworn in on Monday.
But his appointment has been condemned by Senior Counsel Anthony Astaphan who believes that political activists should not be appointed to commissions such as the IPO.
Astaphan is also against the appointment of the Opposition’s choice for the IPO Dave Bruney, who was sworn in on April 7, 2011.
In fact, attorneys representing members of the Roosevelt Skerrit Cabinet has issued a letter to the President of Dominica and copied to the Chairman of the Integrity Commission and the Opposition Leader about their dissatisfaction with the appointment of Dave Bruney as a member of the IPO.
The challenge is led by Telecommunication Minister Ambrose George through Alick Lawrence Chambers.
Astaphan has also confirmed that applications were filed at the court for a judicial review on the appointment of Bruney.
