DIPCON Judgement: President saves Jordan from serving jail time

President David Granger invoked his presidential powers, on Monday, and issued a Grant of Respite in relation to the judgement in the DIPCON Engineering case against Finance Minister Winston Jordan.

Jordan was facing 21 days imprisonment if he failed to pay DIPCON over US$2.2 million by the end of Monday, July 08, 2019. Government is yet to make the payment and it is unclear as to when the court ordered payment will be made.
