UWP President Lennox Linton says the structural integrity of the housing units built by the DLP regime is questionable, yetthe same builders are contracted to develop and build an international airport
President of the United Workers Party (UWP), Lennox Linton stated that since Anthony Haden was given the responsibility for building the international airport, we need to review the agreement made with him, if there are so many thing seriously wrong with the structural integrity of the various housing units that have been built under the DLP regime’s housing revolution program through MMC and Anthony Haden, with money from the sale of Dominica's passport.
Linton asserted that in his opinion, Anthony Haden's agreement is more likely to be about the payment of various project workers with the sales of passports, than it is about the construction of an international airport.
