Consumers' League calls for more disclosure in bad gas saga

Published:Tuesday | January 5, 2016 | 1:42 PM

The National Consumers' League is taking issue with the Government’s handling of the bad gasolene saga.

The League's Second Vice-president, Michael Diamond, says there has been a lack of information since the issue came to national attention last month.

There have been repeated cries from the public for the government to name the gasolene stations and marketing company which put contaminated gasolene on the market.

Dozens of motorists have complained that their vehicles have suffered engine damage as a result of the bad gas.

Despite ordering the closure of pumps at 17 gas stations, the government has declined to name names in the bad gas saga citing legal issues.

However, Diamond says the National Consumers' League believes that the public has a right to know.

He says the group is now exploring the legal options available to press the government to disclose the information.

Diamond says the league has received complaints from members of the public about bad gas.

He says it is important that consumers are told by the authorities how they can get redress.

Meanwhile, Diamond says persons should keep all their receipts and invoices from works carried out to fix problems with their vehicles linked to buying contaminated gasolene.

He was speaking on Cliff Hugh Online on Power 106FM this morning.
