AFR handling: deputies welcome Scrutiny review
Friday 8th March 2013, 5:00PM GMT.
SCRUTINY’S investigation into the handling of the AFR Advocates affair will hopefully resolve the situation once and for all, Treasury’s deputy minister has said.
Deputy Jan Kuttelwascher said news of the inquiry was not unexpected.
Deputy Barry Brehaut said he hoped the inquiry would be carried out quickly because it was in the interest of the States.
Deputy Laurie Queripel, pictured, who was one of three States members to walk out of a Home Department briefing about the AFR affair last week for risk of being compromised, also welcomed the idea of a Scrutiny review.
Home board member Deputy Mary Lowe, who was the only board member to vote in favour of releasing the settlement sum, was delighted Scrutiny would be doing a review.
