Outspoken attorney-at-law, Anslem Clouden has written to the island’s Attorney General, Darshan Ramdhani on the Dorset Charles matter in which government owes the small businessman from Grand Anse, St. George’s EC$3.5 million in compensation.
Both the Court of Appeal and the High Court ruled in favour of Charles whose Worldwide Watersports operation was illegally bulldozed by Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell and his ruling New National Party (NNP) government shortly after it came to power in the 1995 general election.
The administration is said to have made one payment of approximately EC$100, 000.00 to the lawyer who was representing the businessman at the time.
Charles has often claimed that he did not receive any monies from that payment.
Following a recent high court ruling for the State to make payments to the Grand Anse entrepreneur, his new attorney, Anslem Clouden has made several approaches to government to obey the order of the court but without any luck.
Clouden has now written to the Attorney General seeking his intervention in the Dorset Charles matter.
