Battle for millions
DOZENS OF CREDITORS, including Government, are facing an uphill battle to recoup millions of dollars owed by the English developers of two abandoned tourism projects in Barbados.
A high-powered team of financial and legal experts from the Caribbean and the United Kingdom has been assembled to recover at least $600 million in debt left by English company Harlequin.
It includes more than $134 million tied up in a 70-acre property at Merricks, St Philip, and H Hotel at Hastings, Christ Church.
