No. 133 Friday, August 27, 2010
Generation 2000 (G2K), the young professional affiliate of the Jamaica Labour Party calls on the Peoples National Party to immediately address serious and long outstanding questions held by the country, concerning the cloudy arrangements of the Trafigura affair.

   G2K says it is concerned about a recent report coming from the Office of the Contractor General (OCG), which recommends that criminal charges be laid against former PNP Government Minister Cohn Campbell for reportedly failing to cooperate fully with its investigations.
    G2K calls on PNP Chairman Robert Pickersgill, President Portia Simpson-Miller and former Information Minister Cohn Campbell to give full and complete cooperation to the OCG as he attempts to get to the bottom of this sordid affair.
    The young professionals also called on the leadership of the PNP to confirm whether Mr. Cohn Campbell will in fact represent the Party in the constituency of Clarendon North Central despite so many questions surrounding him.
    G2K’s announcement comes on the heels of Contractor General, Greg Christie’s issuing of an 11-page report which details the investigations into allegations that money from Oil-Lifting contracts between the then-government and the Dutch oil firm Trafigura Baheer, found its way into the PNP coffers.
    Christie, in his report, recommended that former Government Minister, Cohn Campbell, be referred to the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP).According to the Contractor General, Campbell failed to cooperate with him as he probed the circumstances of the scandal.
    If Collin Campbell, who at the time was the PNP’s General Secretary, withheld information from the investigators from the Office of the Contractor General, he is likely to be charged as such an act is an offence.
