CONTRACTOR AL BARRACK HAS declared war on Government, saying Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler’s unfulfilled promises had convinced him it was not serious about paying him. An angry Barrack, who was awarded $34 million by the law courts six years ago after suing Government over the completion of the Warrens Office Complex, said yesterday he was tired of being turned around, and would now do whatever it takes to recover every cent he and his creditors are owed – with accrued interests, $75 million. Breaking a near five-month silence, Barrack accused the Government of not acting in good faith on the matter after he had secured a buyer. “The buyer’s bid was $50 million and tentatively he [Sinckler] agreed with it; then they dropped it and said that was not enough. [Sinckler] said they could get many more buyers for it. And I haven’t heard anything else,” charged Barrack.   Read the full story in today's MIDWEEK NATION.
