Bermuda’s Commission of Inquiry starts public hearing into Auditor General’s findings on the Consolidated Fund for 2010, 2011 and 2012

Bermuda’s Commission of Inquiry was established under the Commissions of Inquiry Act, 1935 by the Premier, the Honourable Michael Dunkley JP, MP on February 24, 2016. The Commission has been directed to inquire into the findings of the Auditor General’s report on the Consolidated Fund for the Financial Years 2010, 2011 and 2012.

The Commission is chaired by international jurist and former Bermuda Court of Appeal judge Sir Anthony Evans. Its members are lawyer and former MP John Barritt, businesswoman Fiona Luck and businessman Kumi Bradshaw.

For the insomniacs, some video footage of the public hearing is available online.

Only days before the start of the public hearing, Senator Michael Fahy, in his capacity as Acting Attorney General, gave a press conference in which he argued that the current government’s airport redevelopment project is not within the scope of the Commission’s investigations.
