Rowley slams UNC ‘mischief’

PRIME Minister Dr Keith Rowley says the Opposition is once again attempting to “traumatise the country” over the leasing of Mal­ta ferry Jean De La Valette (JDLV).

Rowley made the comment while speaking with reporters in La Horquetta following a tour yesterday of the Churchill-Roosevelt Highway Extension to Manzanilla and the Greenvale community.

On Tuesday, Works and Transport Minister Rohan Sinanan said the vessel was a medium-term solution for the seabridge and was being leased for one year while the Government awaits the arrival of two fast ferries ordered from Australia.

But Opposition Senator Wade Mark claimed the JDLV was defective and called for the lease to be cancelled.
