Decade Old DoE Debt Continues to Haunt BGA

There is legal trouble brewing in the banana belt.  News Five has confirmed that an outstanding debt, going back almost eleven and a half years, is owed to the Department of the Environment by the Banana Growers Association.  The BGA is led by General Manager Sam Mathias whom we attempted to get comment from earlier today.  While he declined an interview, we were made to understand that the matter is presently before the court as a civil and criminal matter.  Likewise, it is our understanding that the matter stems from an interpretation of law. Chief Environment Officer Martin Alegria was unavailable for comment.
