Calls for civic groups to disclose finances

Conditional support has come from one organization for a motion tabled in Parliament on Tuesday calling for civil society and other interest groups to be registered and provide audited financial accounts for scrutiny.
The motion was tabled by Raymond Pryce, Member of Parliament for North East St. Elizabeth. Mr. Pryce, in tabling the motion, argued that democracies can be compromised by the undue influence of lobby groups which act at the bi-est of funding entities. He made the comparison with other jurisdictions where civic groups are required to be registered and publish audited financial statements, and pressed for the same to be done in Jamaica.
Diana McCaulay, CEO of the Jamaica Environment Trust (JET) argued that in principle she was not against the proposed changes, as long as the reporting requirements apply to all organisations, including churches.
