Chartered Accountant, Kieron Pinard-Byrne is expected to receive monies from Opposition Leader, Lennox Linton, this week. Linton, speaking on Q95's 'Talk on the block' Monday afternoon, said Pinard-Byrne will receive his money on Thursday January 21st 2016.
Linton has to pay Pinard-Byrne $80,000 for defamation. The matter, which has been going on for fourteen years, is centred around comments made by then journalist Lennox Linton on the Layou River Economic citizenship program and the Layou River Hotel project, for which Pinard-Byrne said he was libelled.
Over $100,000 was raised by Dominicans both here and abroad to assist Linton in meeting his legal expenses.
