Statement from Philip Davis MP
Leader of the Opposition
On Dismissal of Water and Sewerage GM
For Immediate Release
15 March 2018
I am concerned about Glen Laville’s dismissal for cause as General Manager of the Water and Sewerage Corporation.
The dismissal was for cause. This denies him his right to severance and possibly his pension. I will continue to monitor this. I am concerned about the bloody mindedness of this FNM regime. They double down to defend their position even in the face of clear mistakes and errors. It appears that basic due process may have been overlooked.
For example they have based the dismissal on an Ernst and Young report which is replete with errors and can be set aside for lack of due process in its results.
I call upon the Works Minister and the W&SC Chairman to re-examine this matter. On the face of it, this dismissal for cause smacks of an injustice.
