No corruption in PURE—Dookeran
Finance Minister Winston Dookeran says there is no corruption in the Programme for Upgrading Roads Efficiency (PURE) under Works and Infrastructure Minister Jack Warner. Dookeran spoke during yesterday’s post-Cabinet news conference at the Office of the Prime Minister in St Clair. The operations of PURE were significantly reduced for the past several months while Dookeran’s ministry carried out an audit into the programme. Questioned about the audit yesterday, Dookeran said: “It mainly looked at the systemic deficiency in the system and there was need for changes to the operationalisation of the PURE.” He said there was a proposal to adjust “the entire structure for delivering expenditure in this area.”
