London gets 7 days to provide details of land deal in Tobago

Orville London told reporters Wednesday Finance Minister Larry Howai has given the Tobago House of Assembly (THA) seven days to produce all documents and details related to the THA/MILSHIRV transaction.

The multi-million dollar deal is for the construction of an administrative office complex on a three-acre parcel of land at the Shirvan Road/Claude Noel Highway intersection in Tobago’s west end.

London spoke about the letter at a media briefing.
The latter is dated October 23 and signed by Howai. 

It states: “I refer to the THA’s purported construction of the Shirvan Administrative Office Complex on land acquired by the THA from Dankett Limited on November 15, 2011 by Deed no DE2012 009055 14D001. 

“I would be grateful if you would provide me by return with (1) details of the funding accessed by the THA for payment of the purchase price of the land said in the Deed to be $12 million;

“(2) details of and all documents related to the proposed construction of the Office Complex and its financing, including, without limitation, details of and documents pertaining to, any BOLT arrangement which the THA has entered, or proposes to enter into with respect to same. Please be good enough to provide same within seven (7) days hereof, as this matter has been the subject of much public disquiet and discussion and my Ministry has no knowledge of same.”

London said: “We have no problem in making all the information available to the Finance Minister.”
