The Office of the Attorney General has refiled a claim against Jearlean John and other HDC members, following the purchase of Eden Gardens for $175 million, two years after it was valued at $5 million.
The Office of the Attorney General made the announcement via a media statement issued today:
Acting Prime Minister Colm Imbert says there are 352 persons in arrears at four Housing Development Corporation (HDC) complexes at this time.
Imbert was speaking in the Senate in the capacity of acting Minister of Housing.
He said there are 56 in the East Grove community, 132 in the Oasis development, 18 at Eden Gardens and 146 at Cashew Gardens.
The minister says the HDC has increased resources in a bid to recover the arrears and also to set up payment plans to help those who find it difficult to pay.
