The People's National Party (PNP) is raising questions about the gag placed on employees of the Rural Agricultural Development Authority (RADA) in relation to the controversy surrounding the Farm Roads Rehabilitation Programme.
The PNP this week called for an investigation into the alleged allocation of $1.6 million to rehabilitate roads in St. Thomas under the programme.
In a media release Thursday, the party said it noted that RADA chairman Nigel Myrie is the only person designated to speak on the matter.
Other RADA employees have been told not to make any public comments.
The PNP is claiming this is a breach of government procedures and policy.
In addition, it said it never stated it could confirm that the $1.6 billion was actually spent.
According to the party, that is why it has asked the Auditor General to conduct an audit of RADA.
