The government is again defending its handling of the ABST row with Sandals, insisting it has acted in the best interests of the country’s economy and people.
Information Minister the Hon Melford Nicholas outlined the sequence of events during Thursday Post-Cabinet media briefing.
He also chastised Political Leader of the UPP, Senator Harold Lovell over his recent comments on the issue.
He says the law was clear on the level of concessions on ABST offered to the company.
Nicholas repeated the position of Prime Minister Gaston Browne that the closure of Sandals is deemed an act of hostility against the government and people of Antigua and Barbuda.
