Julian Robinson, the MP for southeast St Andrew, has made public details of his assets and income that were included in several reports he filed with the Integrity Commission.

Robinson, who is also a deputy general secretary of the Opposition People's National Party (PNP), says his decision to go public was to silence aspersions about his capacity to purchase a house valued at over J$70 million in the upper St Andrew community of Jack's Hill.

Based on his report to the Integrity Commission last year, the second-term MP  has assets amounting to over J$150 million, including joint investments with his father.

According to the reports, this reflects an increase from approximately J$126 million Robinson held in assets and investments when he entered representational politics in 2011.

Robinson told the Gleaner-Power106 news centre that he has nothing to hide and that he has always acted above board.
