A Commission of Inquiry into the Department of Finance was conducted from 2006 until 2009 following widespread reports of corruption and mismanagement. The Commission report was presented in Parliament on March 5, 2010.
The Commission report details how the Finance Department paid out hundreds of millions of dollars in sham compensation claims.
The Commission recommended more than 50 people including lawyers, senior bureaucrats and businessmen be referred for criminal prosecution.
Fot three years, from March 2010 until November 2013, a court injunction obtained by Paul Paraka, a prominent lawyer, and Zacchary Gelu, a former Solicitor General, prevented the publication and implementation of the Commission findings.
The injunction was finally lifted on November 29, 2013.
Since then no steps have been taken to implement the Commission recommendations, prosecute any of the individuals implicated or recover any of the money.
