New Contractor General calls on Jamaicans to join fight against corruption

KINGSTON, Jamaica (JIS) – Newly appointed Contractor General, Dirk Harrison, is imploring all stakeholders to assist his office in a renewed fight against corruption.

“It cannot be business as usual. We cannot keep ‘passing the buck’…waiting for the next generation or the next person to solve or begin to seriously tackle the ills of today. We must be prepared to do whatever it takes, for however long it takes to continue, renew, reshape our strategy in our fight against the abominable crime called corruption,” he said.

Harrison was speaking after being sworn in as the country’s fifth Contractor General, by Governor-General Sir Patrick Allen at King’s House, on February 25.
