Lennie Little-White declined comment when pressed on the relationship between Outameni and Barefoot Princess on Tuesday.

But Little-White declared: "NHT did not buy the Outameni concept, they did not buy the name, they did not buy the chattels, they did not buy the copyright.

"They ... bought the land and the buildings," he said.
