Commerce Bight Fiasco Continues

The saga involving Commerce Bight, Recological Systems Limited and the company’s investors continues with a response to several allegations that were made last week against R.S.L. and its present owners.  On Monday, Managing Director Paul Martin issued a statement refuting a number of claims that were made during a press conference hosted by siblings Abraham and Heinrich Frose.  The brothers allege that they were stiffed out of two million dollars in investments that were to be used to develop the defunct port facility.  The document includes thirteen points in which Martin counters all the assertions that were made against him and R.S.L. by Alan Gobie and the Frose brothers.  He even makes bold assertions attacking the credibility of Indira Mejia who appeared at last Thursday’s press brief at the Biltmore on behalf of the Froses.  News Five spoke with Mejia this afternoon and we were informed that she has consulted her attorney in respect of the allegations being made against her.  Mejia admits that she was paid a sum of ten thousand dollars to lobby government to green light the port project; however, she denies being under contract with R.S.L. to provide legal services.
