Expenses for B.T.L. Settlement Will Go to the C.C.J.

Dean Barrow

As the PM has openly stated, litigation over the remaining B.T.L. bill will certainly be taken up at the CCJ level, notwithstanding the presumed total that’s left to be paid.


Prime Minister Dean Barrow

“Without wanting to get too much into it, I repeat that the whole issue of what is fair and what is legitimate, in terms of what can be claimed, we accept, as we must, that there are expenses that we in fact must reimburse.  But the fundamental issue of quantum is very much in play.  There is no way this was an agreement to pay any at large sum that the alliance’s imagination can conjure up and so it’s back to the CCJ.”



“So do you know the figures sir, the quantum?”


Prime Minister Dean Barrow

“No. No, it’s not been formally received yet, although I gather that it’s imminent.  But we do know that, as you say, it’s going to be huge.  It’s going to be absolutely, in my mind, unjustifiably, unsustainably inflated and so we are going to challenge.”
