The governor general has denied the United Progressive Party’s request for him to call a commission of inquiry into the Odebretch scandal.
The UPP’s Public Relations Officer, Damani Tabor has confirmed this.

Observer media understands that the Governor General, Sir Rodney sent a letter with his response on Tuesday.

He had met with the UPP leader Harold Lovell and other members of the Party almost two weeks ago to discuss the Odebretch Scandal.
The UPP has been clamouring for an inquiry to determine if Antiguan and Barbudan officials are involved as alleged by US authorities.

Tabor says that an Odebretch inquiry would not be expensive as some government officials are suggesting.
