An effort is on to resolve yet another occupancy dispute over a government-owned vending stall with the aggrieved parties threatening to take the matter to court.
A week after a matter involving a National Conservation Commission stall at Oistins, Christ Church was resolved a disputing is simmering over a vending stall at Six Roads, St. Philip which falls under the Minister of Agriculture.
Businessman Haldene Barrow complains of being locked out of the food and drinks stall that he has been operating for the past five years at Six Roads Public Market despite, according to him, being fully paid up in rent.
Meantime, Mr. Barrow’s attorney, Senior Counsel, Michael Lashley, tells Starcom Network News he has sent off correspondence today to the Agriculture Ministry hoping to resolve the matter without having to go to court.
Senior Counsel, Michael Lashley.
When contacted by Starcom Network News, Agriculture Minister, Indar Weir, said he couldn’t comment on the issue as it was potentially a court matter.
