Leader of the Opposition Hector John has written to Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit, calling on the government leader to give an update on the controversial “Bin Bobol” issue.
In a letter dated August 24, 2010, John draws the attention of the prime minister to what the opposition describe as “many discrepancies associated with the purchase of garbage bins by government seemingly on the request of the Roseau City Council”.

The letter calls on the prime minister to break his silence and clarify to the nation “the obvious vast differences between statements made and assurances given by him (the Prime Minister) in his June 2009 address”.
“Failure to do so,” John stressed, “could be construed by fair-minded persons that (the Prime Minister) is either directly involved in the theft of the people’s money or that (he) is an upholder of persons so involved.”
To date no response has been forthcoming from the prime minister, the Opposition United Workers Party (UWP) has said.
