Government Attorneys Push for Damages in Barbuda Airport Case
Wednesday 26th September, 2018-Government lawyers in the Barbuda Airport Construction case will move ahead in seeking damages, as a result of the work stoppage on the project, arising from an injunction that was granted.
The confirmation comes from attorney Dr. David Dorsett, who said that was one of the matters presented to the judge in the High Court today.
Government had threatened to file for damages if the lawyer representing the Barbudan interest applied for a second injunction.
Dr. Dorsett says there are a number of applications before the judge that require resolutions.
Through their lawyer, Barbudans John Mussington and Jacklyn Frank were successful in petitioning the court for an injunction to stop work on the airport project, citing environmental issues.
However, the injunction was lifted on September 11th, after an appeal was filed by government attorneys.
