The Cabinet decided that all contracts which the government entered into with PV Energy, a company owned by bribery accused Peter Virdee, are to be made public.
It was not indicated when the contracts will be released but the government insists “there is nothing untoward, the Cabinet asserts, with the contract(s) to provide solar energy plants to Antigua and in Barbuda.”
“The method of financing was innovative but transparent and capable of open public scrutiny,” a statement Cabinet said.
