Nathan Dundas, the President of the Antigua and Barbuda Cruise Tourism Association, has fired back at Prime Minister Gaston Browne and Tourism Minister Charles ‘Max’ Fernandez over recent comments made in public.
The Prime Minister, on his Pointe FM radio station last Saturday, made allegations that Dundas – who is also the General Manager for Bryson’s Shipping – and his company were involved in financial impropriety.
Speaking on OBSERVER AM yesterday, Dundas categorically denied those accusations.
“I categorically deny the statements made on the Prime Minister’s radio station on Saturday that [Bryson’s Shipping] was involved in any impropriety of monies and was collecting money from the cruise lines over time and not paying it to the port. All I would say is that we have turned the matter over to our attorneys,” he said.
Both senior members of the Cabinet of Ministers have been on the record about their criticism of
Dundas for his statements on OBSERVER about the Global Port Holdings (GPH) deal.
Tourism Minister Max Fernandez told reporters at the post-Cabinet briefing that Dundas knew about the negotiations with Global Port before he made his comments, and Fernandez questioned the intentions of Dundas.
Dundas, in response, said that he only learned of the deal after it was reported in the news media.
“The Honourable Max Fernandez has been making some remarks about my knowledge of the [GPH] agreement. The truth
is that like most people in Antigua, I only learned of the information of the move after it came out
on OBSERVER,” he said adding, “[After I made my comments], my company and my name has
been vilified in the public media.”
