Corporate surveillance Bill ‘does more good than harm’

The Bill which some say imposes undue corporate surveillance on behalf of international authorities is hailed for possibly doing more good than harm for the sake of transparency.

The principal question of this discussion is “What level of transparency is needed in the private sector and is the Law (Miscellaneous Amendments) Bill 2017 – which some argue imposes undue surveillance – the right legislation to achieve that?”

Our guests are:

  1. Chairman of the Antigua & Barbuda True Labour Party (ABTLP) and attorney at law Vere Bird III
  2. Senator and Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the United Progressive Party (UPP) Damani Tabor
