The Opposition Leader Portia Simpson Miller is expected today to table a statement in Parliament in relation to the filing of her financial records with the Integrity Commission.

A statement from the People’s National Party last week said the statement would speak specifically and decisively to integrity issues and her own report to the Integrity Commission.

There have been calls for Simpson Miller to declare her assets especially since the Prime Minister Andrew Holness recently released his financial records to three media houses, including The Gleaner.

The records show that Holness had assets valued at $152 million and liabilities totalling $34.4 million at the end of March this year.

Commenting on Twitter last week former contractor general Greg Christie said all lawmakers should release their records.
