The government says it is working with the Chairman of Global Ports Holding (GPH) along with two of his advisers to defend the deal in court.
Describing the case as “frivolous” the government says it intends to fight the case brought by the United Progressive Party (U.P.P.) Leader Harold Lovell.
Lovell is being accused of trying to retard the port project; acting as a lawyer, “he has filed unwarranted lawsuits against the Government.”
In notes circulated after Wednesday’s Cabinet meeting, the government denied statements it said Lovell made that a Judge of the High Court has determined that the lawsuits he filed have merit; “that untruthful claim was rejected by the lawyer.”
“There was no ex parte hearing. While the poorly argued and badly constructed pleadings submitted by the U.P.P. lawyer are indefensible, the Government’s lawyer would nevertheless arm himself, as any competent defense attorney should, with the appropriate responses in his submissions that are due in a few weeks.”
A trial date will likely be several months away.

Lovell needs to find something constructive to help develop Antigua. He is a pure waste of space.
I know what he can do. He can help clean up dog poo and keep Antigua clean, Empty garbage bins,
There goes the next (wannabe) Prime Minister.
Busy doing nothing. Busy looking busy. Busy wasting time. Busy pretending to have leadership skills. He wasn’t even able to rally the troups this past Labour Day Monday. If he can’t get people to follow him for one day, how he plan to rally the troops come next general elections? Is he sure firing Damani as the party PRO was not punitive?
It was labour day. Not election day. They give toohoots about workers.
Maybe the court will remember that A&B has a constitution and laws on the books for once.
Lame Lovell is totally wasting the UPP’s time and the UPP base knows it judging from the unprecedented low Labour Day turnout this year. Why?
It’s common knowledge that Harold, Gisele Chaku and other elites hijacked the UPP convention. Illegal meetings. Bribery. Bullying. Denying younger voters membership. Non-voters participating. What WASN’T TRIED? Everyone and their pet chicken have already seen the convention-day ballot stuffing video with Veronica Three-Questions. So what unity or real traction can he expect?
Congrats Harold. You and the elitist dinosaurs in your Big Blue Echo Chamber can now hobble along with an illegitimate mandate and “election slam dunk victory momentum” that only exists in your delusional daydreams.
Of course.. like lambs to the slaughter, the “defeated” pretend that all is well for the sake of unity, but the public is not fooled. We know that Lewis-supporting caretakers remain banned from UPP Executive meetings. Next step? Get rid of Lewis, Trevor Young, Kyron Simon and Driftwood “the ALP mole” without any primaries.
.. and Gaston Browne is the dictator, right?
The new PRO is a total disgrace. UPP will “revisit income tax” after you get in? Pathetic. How dumb can someone be to say that to Daren when it was the UPP position last election that income tax would be gone forever for the sake of “fiscal predictability”
Lovell is listening to the wrong people. He is surrounded by FAKE FRIENDS. No one to “keep it real” with him and let him know that no way in Halcyon he could ever become PM. Instead they tell him what he WANTS to hear as opposed to what he NEEDS to hear. He is wasting precious time that he will never be able to get back. He still has the PLM spirit deep in his bones.
He just looks and sounds WASHED-UP and USED. His time has come and gone. Give Richard Lewis a chance and stop it with the Tradewind meetings.
THE UPP IS COMPLETELY FINISHED . HAROLD IS TRYING TO START THE “FAITHFUL NATIONALS” BUT THEY AINT GOING ANYWHERE. THE NEW UPP EXECUTIVES AND I QUOTE FROM MR . KNIGHT OF OBSERVER RADIO ” OLD WINE IN BROKEN BOTTLE”.NEXT ELECTION ALL THE SEATS WILL BE ABLP.
THE UPP AND OBSERVER JUST COMPLAIN AND COMPLAIN.
ON ANOTHER NOTE. HOW CAN YOU RAISE FUNS PUBLICLY TO SUPPORT A LIMITED REGISTERED COMPANT. ONLY REGISTERED CHARITABLE ORGANIZATIONS AND REGISTERED FOUNDATIONS CAN RAISE FUNDS PUBLICLY. A PRIVATE COMPANY SHOULD SELL STOCKS ON THE STOCK MARKET. SO WHAT THE OBSERVER IS DOING THIS WEEK TO RAISE FUNDS IS AGAINST THE LAW. I HOPE SOMEONE CAN SHED SOME LIGHT ON THIS SCHEME.
