Budgetary crisis cited as possible reason for Bent's decision to quit

RJR News has received information on a possible reason for the decision of Jevene Bent, Head of  the Department of  Corrections, to quit the post.

Well placed sources say her imminent departure is linked to the department's limited budget. She had reportedly indicated her unwillingness to work with the limited resources.

This has been communicated to senior officials in the National Security Ministry as well as the Services Commission. 

When RJR News contacted Aston Johnson, Senior Negotiating Officer with the University and Allied Workers Union, he said Miss Bent  hinted that she would be leaving if  she did not get a workable budget.

RJR News was informed that Miss Bent, a retired Deputy Commissioner of  Police, tendered her resignation last week just over a year into her two year- contract. 

She is expected to stay on for at least a month until a temporary replacement is identified.
