Tobago House of Assembly (THA) Chief Secretary Orville London said yesterday he felt vindicated that at the end of it all the “AG has finally accepted that Milshirv was about an interpretation of the law and not about abuse of the law by any individual”.
According to London, the Minister of Finance has described Milshirv Properties as an “innocent third party, in a context where his colleagues had accused the company and THA of colluding in an illegal transaction”.
He said the THA was relieved that the project can be resumed and hopefully delivered in the shortest possible time, adding that the THA will await the ruling of the court on the powers of the Assembly under the THA Act of 1996.
“It however, strengthens our determination to have the issue of internal self government for Tobago addressed, as a matter of extreme urgency,” he said.
