The failed controversial attempt to sell the Barbados National Terminal Company Limited (BNTCL) to Simpson Oil Limited (SOL) could soon be the subject of an investigation, according to Government sources.
One of the burning questions the pending investigation is expected to examine is why a particular attorney was paid $3.125 million for legal work on the project.
What is particularly disturbing about this fee, the sources said is that the last payment of $1 million, was made to the attorney on May 23 this year – the day before the last General Election.
As the same attorney has been a central figure in a number of other high-priced transactions on behalf of the last Democratic Labour Party administration, the Sunday Sun understands, discussions are ongoing with the Mia Amor Mottley administration being urged to probe every transaction over the last decade.
