THERE’S SOME CONTROVERSY brewing in that lawsuit related to the construction of the Hyatt Hotel.

Callers to the radio call-in programme Down To Brass Tacks on Voice of Barbados yesterday questioned why senior counsel Hal Gollop was now representing Prime Minister Freundel Stuart in the matter where political activist and attorney at law David Comissiong is seeking judicial review of the project.

Originally, Deputy Solicitor General Donna Brathwaite was representing Stuart, but last Friday when the case came up again in the No.6 Supreme Court, Gollop, a Queen’s Counsel, along with Steve Gollop and Neil Marshall, appeared on the Prime Minister’s behalf.

However, Gollop called the programme to say he was not representing the Prime Minister, but a person whose job it was “to examine and give consent to applications made in respective of Town and Country Planning. That person happens to be the minister responsible for Town and Country Planning”. (JS)
