Munroe ... the SLB's action is yet another example of the disparity in the treatment between of the small man and the "big fish"

Executive Director of the National Integrity Action (NIA) Professor Trevor Munroe, has taken issue with the Students' Loan Bureau (SLB) for publishing the names and photographs of delinquent borrowers.

Speaking at an NIA town hall meeting in May Pen, Clarendon, Munroe said while it was not right for these students to borrow loans and not repay, the SLB's action was not right either.

 

He pointed out that there are many large entities that are not paying over the requisite taxes to the government but no similar action is taken against them.

Munroe said the SLB's action is yet another example of the disparity in the treatment of the small man and the "big fish".
