Meanwhile the GSD says there will never be a clearer attempt to humiliate a political opponent than the Government’s treatment of Mr Montiel. It notes that under the terms of his contract as a GDC employee prior to becoming a Minister, Mr Montiel is entitled to be reinstated in his former grade. However, on reporting for work this Monday he was told no arrangements had been made for him to do so at Grade 4, and that he was to work as a receptionist until further notice.
The GSD says this shows how far the Government, and Employment Minister Joe Bossano in particular, will go to humiliate or brush aside anyone who does not share their views. It claims this also happened with the directors of the Bus Company and the CEO of the Housing Agency, among others.
The party says this move follows a barrage of snide and almost obsessive remarks by Mr Bossano about Mr Montiel at every parliamentary session, and that this begs the question as to how the Chief Minister can allow the Minister for Employment to deal with this issue.
