OBA Chairman Thad Hollis said his internal investigation was launched as a result of Ayo Johnson’s reporting.

That means if not for Ayo’s credible and thorough reporting, these very serious allegations would have been left un-investigated.

For me, this proves unequivocally that Politica’s ‘Selling Bermuda’ article is neither a ‘side show’ nor a ‘distraction’ as some have called it.

High journalistic standards matter and when they are upheld — as I tried to do in the case of ‘Selling Bermuda’ — the public has a shot at getting the answers it deserves.

 I hope the OBA’s internal investigation is as credible and thorough as the reporting that inspired it.
