OBA Accuses Premier Burt Of Misleading The Public

David Burt and the PLP have misled the people of Bermuda. They continue to make false claims against the former Attorney General. Instead of focusing on tackling corruption, the PLP would rather deflect and misinform the public.

Two weeks ago David Burt referred to a confidential US Department of Justice email that was illegally obtained by PLP members last year. He selectively quoted from the email to mislead the people with a fake controversy about our treaty relationship with the USA.

This was a dangerous action by David Burt. He should have been aware that the matter was swiftly resolved by the AG’s Chambers. In so doing, he has jeopardized Bermuda’s law enforcement relationship with the USA.

The question is: why? Why is David Burt so keen to distract the people of Bermuda from past misdeeds? Why is David Burt not doing all he can to fight corruption?

The OBA and AG at the time, Trevor Moniz, championed anti-corruption legislation and important good governance measures. We call on the PLP to do the same in the interests of Bermudians and our international reputation.
