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:
Former Housing Development Corporation (HDC) managing director Jearlean John is suing the State agency for $17 million following her termination on March 22.
John, through her attorney Gerald Ramdeen, is seeking damages for wrongful dismissal and/or breach of contract of employment at the HDC and “all consequential loss suffered as a result of future employment prospects.”
Having served different prime ministers in varying capacities, John is also seeking “aggravated exemplary damages” for the HDC’s handling in her dismissal.
