Port of Spain Trinidad…

Billionaire businessman Lawrence Duprey is orchestrating decisions which could see him wresting control of his once-mighty CL Financial from Government as early as 2012.

Duprey, who last year resigned as chairman of CL Financial and subsidiary CLICO, the country's largest insurer, has met the management of CL-owned Scotland spirits producer in London and is said to be still relaying instructions to senior CL executives, Government sources confirmed yesterday.

At the centre of the manoeuvres is a transaction involving the sale by Duprey last year of CLICO Energy to a German business group called Proman.

Jamaica....

Jamaica’s  Office of the Contractor General (OCG)  is concerned about a decision by cabinet to extend the registration of some contractors until February 2011

The OCG has expressed its uneasiness in a release, describing the Cabinet directive to the NCC as a highly questionable, very dangerous and reckless act.

The OCG says the directive appears to have dictated that certain Government contractors whose registration certificates have already expired be deemed to be registered in their pre-existing categories and grades through to February 28 next year.
