QUIT: Integrity Commission member Prof Ann Marie Bissessar....

PROFESSOR Ann Marie Bissessar, a member of the Integrity Commission (IC) — which is now involved in court action following a row between the commission’s chairman Ken Gordon and deputy chairman Gladys Gafoor — has resigned as head of the Behavioural Sciences at the University of the West Indies, St Augustine campus.

The resignation, effective June 1, comes a year before the end of Prof Bissessar’s three-year contract with UWI. She assumed the position in 2010 and her tenure was due to end on July 31, 2013. Prof Bissessar gave as the reason for her early departure, the fact that she regarded her appointment a temporary one. It is understood, however, that she had hoped to be made Dean of the Department of Social Sciences but someone else had been selected.

Prof Bissessar was one of the Integrity Commission members who wrote a letter to President George Maxwell Richards in which she complained about Gafoor insulting her, “in a most vicious manner”, and of making unkind remarks about Attorney General Anand Ramlogan and Transport Minister Devant Maharaj.

Prof Bissessar also noted the row between the deputy chairman and other commissioners, including herself, had severely impacted on her professional and personal life.
