St Lucia PM renews appeal for information on controversial oil exploration agreement

Some four years after then leader of the opposition in Saint Lucia, Stephenson King, wrote to the governor general, Dame Pearlette Louisy, seeking clarification regarding an oil exploration licence purportedly granted to Colorado oilman Jack Grynberg by the Dr Kenny Anthony administration in 2000, current prime minister Allen Chastanet told parliament that the country is still “in the dark” on the matter.

“We have found no official record of the Grynberg transaction, neither in the files of Cabinet nor in Hansard,” he said, calling on anyone with information to come forward and put the matter to rest.
