Accountant laments no EIA done for Old Road Project; questions doubling of estimate cost for new Basseterre High School
The revelation that no environmental impact assessment (EIA) was done for the multi-million Old Road rehabilitation project and the withholding of the EIA on the new Basseterre High School have called into question the government’s stance on accountability.
Schneidman Warner, a reputable local accountant is the latest to voice his displeasure with the lack of transparency in relation to government projects.
Warner also questioned the doubling of the estimated cost of the new Basseterre High School, from $EC40 million EC$80 million.
He was at the time doing an interview with Clive Bacchus.
The local accountant intimated that because of the size of the Old Road Rehabilitation Project an EIA was required.
Weeks before St Kitts-Nevis Labour Party candidate for St Christopher 6, Mr Steve Wrensford, called on Prime Minister Dr Timothy Harris, Infrastructure Minister Ian “Parches” Liburd and parliamentary representative Hon. Lindsay Grant to make public the Environmental Impact Assessment study for the Old Road Bay Rehabilitation Project.
