The Saint Lucia Labour Party held a Press Conference this morning, Wednesday January 18, 2017 at 11 AM at the Office of the Leader of the Opposition from 11am. The purpose of this Press Conference was to respond to comments made by Invest St.Lucia at their press conference yesterday.
Speaking on behalf of the SLP, former CIP (Citizenship by Investment Program) Chairman, and also member of the Opposition and elected Representative for Castries South, Dr. Ernest Hilaire presented his Party’s position on the proposed Desert Star Holdings project in Vieux Fort.
This continues to be an ongoing skirmish between the government and the Opposition on conditions of the agreement between the Government of Saint Lucia and Desert Star Holdings, which was leaked late last year. Multiple press conferences called and statements to the press have been made by both sides.
Dr. Ernest Hilaire’s statement to the press is presented below in its entirety.FINAL-STATEMENT BY HON DR ERNEST HILAIRE IN RESPONSE TO GOVERNMENT'S DSH FACT SHEET
