Dear Editor,

Corruption is the the biggest threat to our country's development.

The newly formed Integrity Commission is now in disrepute because of a split in opinion on the Daryl Vaz beach sale.

Former Contractor General Dirk Harrison, now the temporary head of the Corruption Prosecution Division of this commission, has an opinion, while his bosses all have the same opinion — different from his.

As a member of the public looking on it's not a good look.

If I am to choose from former retired Court of Appeal judge Karl Harrison, Court of Appeal President Justice Seymour Panton, former Contractor General Derrick McKoy, current Auditor General Pamela Munroe-Ellis, and Tax Expert Eric Crawford over the former Contractor General Dirk Harrison, I will.

I believe if Harrison can't provide any real evidence to back his report he should do the the honourable thing and resign.

Thereafter, I believe former Contractor General Greg Christie should be brought back to bring confidence as head of Corruption Prosecution Division.

If Christie comes to the same conclusion as Harrison, clearly something is wrong with the heads of this commission.
