Attorney General Dale Marshall is not substantiating reports of a LIAT share price divide between the Governments of Barbados and Antigua and Barbuda.

“I am afraid that [Antigua Prime Minister] Gaston Browne will have to do all of the talking. I am not negotiating in the public domain,” said Marshall, who is Barbados’ lead negotiator on the matter.

On Monday, Browne was reported as saying his administration wanted to purchase Barbados’ stake in the regional carrier, which is headquartered in Antigua. But he said they were not prepared to pay the reported US$44 million asking price.

Browne had previously said that contrary to recent reports of a breakdown in talks between the two countries, discussions were continuing. (SC)
