Algernon Cargill officially gone from Aviation Department

Director of Aviation Algernon Cargill cleaned out his office on Friday after being relieved of his duties.

Earlier this month, Cargill received notice from the Ministry of Tourism and Aviation that his services are no longer needed and today was his last day on the job.

Cargill, who left the National Insurance Board in disgrace under the last Christie Administration in 2013, was appointed Aviation Director under the Minnis Administration.

The former government also awarded Cargill a $400,000 settlement after he sued the government for wrongful dismissal.

The big payout went against legal advice by both internal and external counsel who advised the FNM government that Cargill was not entitled to a settlement.

However, then-Minister of National Insurance Brensil Rolle instructed NIB to pay the handsome sum to Cargill, who is a relative of then-Prime Minister Dr. Hubert Minnis and a staunch FNM supporter.
