The debate on Anwar Barrow’s involvement as a shareholder in one of the companies tied to the renewed gaming contract was of concern for the Cayo South Area Rep because Espat maintained that over the life of the agreement, proceeds of approximately half a billion dollars will be netted by the principals.

“I have concerns of a five hundred million contract.  It is a five hundred million dollar contract in worth and I have concerns.”

 

Laura Tucker-Longsworth, Speaker of the House

“Give me a chance when I’m speaking, member, because I am giving you the floor.  I‘m not taking the floor away from you but if I‘m speaking, you then give me the floor.  I am saying that we need to be careful going down this road, you have the floor, you‘re asking questions [but] that has been dealt with before.  I think we need to just make the point and move on, please.”

 

Julius Espat

“I’ll be very careful and delicate in continuing, Madam Speaker.”
