Barbados Central Bank Governor bans Nation newspaper

(Barbados Nation) Governor of the Central Bank of Barbados, Dr DeLisle Worrell, has banned THE NATION, including all its journalists, from attending any of his Press conferences or other Central Bank media events.

Worrell, the chief economic advisor to the Freundel Stuart Government, notified Nation Publisher and Chief Executive Officer Vivian-Anne Gittens and Editor-in-Chief Roy Morris of the unprecedented move in a one-paragraph letter sent on Thursday.

“Consequent upon the lack of professional integrity manifest in the Nation’s Front Page headline of Thursday, May 8, you should be aware that Nation/Sun staff will not be invited to any future Press conference or media event hosted by myself as Governor of the Central Bank,” said the letter signed by the Central Bank boss and which was copied to Bank employees.

The events unfolded within hours of a DAILY NATION Front Page story on Thursday headlined 60 To Go in which it was revealed that hard times had hit the Central Bank and its staff were about to feel the fall-out.
