EDITOR, The Tribune.
Why is the Chair of the Public Accounts Committee fast asleep at the wheel?
He should be down the throat of Government over the suspected tax avoidance or owing of Phil Ruffin a long time ago for tax on his operating a Casino... it surely should not have required the Auditor General to make it public everyone knew Ruffin left owing millions.
The Gaming Board, inter alia Government, has brought a petition against Baha Mar for a similar indebtedness so there should be no problem in instructing their counsel on the Baha Mar case, Wayne Munroe, QC, to bring a suit against Mr Ruffin and if Mr Ruffin has no assets in The Bahamas do the same in Nevada.
There is no favours – if this money is owed it should be paid in full, and utility bills better be checked out to make certain they were also paid as well as NIB.
