Implementation – Political Victimization


Politicians by themselves cannot victimize an individual.  However, they can use a politicised public service.  While political victimization may not be eliminated, it can be discouraged with the loss of pension penalty.


1.  The Constitution of Barbados, Section 104, states that the Service Commission can recommend to the Governor General that the pension of any public servant be reduced or suspended due to being guilty of misbehaviour for which he has been removed from office.

2.  The Public Service Act will be amended to explicitly state the acts of partisan political behaviour that will attract immediate dismissal and suspension of the pension.  The acts will include politically partisan: approving and non-approving applications, providing and denying services, and facilitating and frustrating processes.

3.  Politically partisan behaviour will be determined by audit results and/or appeal decisions.
