"Is It Finally The End For Mr Jolly?"

Ozouf under pressure to resign


Senator Ozouf has declined to comment until after Tuesday's States sitting

TREASURY Minister Philip Ozouf is coming under mounting pressure from all sides to resign after a report into the Lime Grove fiasco raised serious concerns about his political conduct.

On Tuesday, Comptroller and Auditor General Chris Swinson published his report into the States’ failed bid to buy the Green Street roundabout site for a new police station. In it he largely blamed Senator Ozouf for the collapse of the deal and accused him of bullying, harassment, and plotting to get rid of a senior civil servant.

Sources have revealed that embattled Treasury Minister was yesterday forced to defend his position at a Council of Ministers meeting.

Although Chief Minister Ian Gorst and a number of other senior ministers were not present at the meeting, it is the clearest indication yet of precarious nature of the Treasury Minister’s position.

Senator Ozouf has said he will not comment on his position or the allegations until after next week’s States sitting.
