  1. That is the biggest JOKE I have ever heard in my life . Minister has lied to the Taiwanese to get money under false pretense, nothing was done, garbage trucks were purchased and handed to brother, nothing was done. So what will the commission do?
    I feel ashame for the person who put out this press release.

  2. That is surely a joke… For decades only a small percentage of public officers file the necessary statements… All talk.. Let us see action and let us see if the Commission has spurs.
    Waiting……………

  3. So what about Allen and Guy ??? Better yet The commission should subpoena Allen Taxes I strongly recommend the years 2009 thru 2019. Guy from the day he enter public office UNTIL NOW.
