Attorney General Levi Peters has dismissed claims that Jamaican Dancehall artiste, Tommy Lee Sparta won his case against Dominica, and will be receiving a cash settlement in the matter.
For the past two weeks, online publications appeared to have been indicating that a cash settlement was reached between Tommy Lee and the government, however Peter, speaking at a press conference on Friday, said the online publications were all wrong. However, the publications allegedly went viral, and were widely discussed on social media.
Attorney Levi Peter said “If there was a settlement, I would know. As I speak to you, there is no settlement with Tommy Lee Sparta.” The online publications also suggested that Tommy Lee would be receiving US$3-million from Dominica.
However, Attorney General Levy refuted such claims saying, “I can say categorically, that is inaccurate, and incorrect, and from where I sit, on instructions I have on behalf of the government at the moment, there will be no settlement in the sum of $3 Million. But to put it simply, there is no settlement at this point in that matter, but are ongoing discussions.”
