PM Timothy Harris surrogate to Premier Mark Brantley: “Begin to service the EC$142 million loan at NB without further delay”
Basseterre, St Kitts, November 26, 2019 – An individual on FaceBook, who touts the policies and positions of Prime Minister Dr the Hon Timothy Harris on FaceBook, is allegding that Premier of Nevis, Hon Mark Brantley, is refusing to service a EC$142 million credit facility to his Nevis Island Administration from the St Kitts-Nevis-Anguilla National Bank.
Leonardo Phillip said the EC$142 million-dollar credit facility from the St. Kitts-Nevis-Anguilla National Bank (NB) is guaranteed by the Timothy Harris’ Federal Government in Basseterre.
“I am, however, saying that the Premier and the NIA must be held to account for and must begin to service this $142 million loan at NB without further delay,” said Phillip.
“As the Brantley-led NIA refuses to service and chose not to even communicate with the NB regarding their irresponsible and blatant disregard for depositors money. Indeed the NB stands to further lose tens of thousands of dollars from the NIA’s $142 million-dollar non-performing huge debt,” Phillip posted.
Premier Brantley is Minister of Foreign Affairs and Civil Aviation in Harris’ Federal Cabinet.
Dr Harris has never distanced himself from the postings of several FaceBook accounts that tout his policies and programmes.
