Opposition Leader Andrew Holness is calling on Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller to come clean and release all documents related to her government's discussions and decisions regarding the purchase of lands and other property related to the Outameni Experience.



Holness says the call comes in light of an increasing number of questions related to the transaction, including reports of correspondence between Prime Minister Simpson Miller and different Cabinet Ministers regarding Outameni.



According to Holness, Jamaicans needs to know who knew what and when.



He also says it’s important to know whether it is the Prime Minister, or the National Housing Trust’s Board who has misled the public.



The Opposition leader says the government must answer for how it is handling the contributions of hard working Jamaicans many of whom cannot access NHT benefits.



And he says since the Prime Minster is responsible for the NHT and appointed the NHT Board, she is ultimately responsible for the matter.



Holness made it clear that the Opposition will not rest until the whole truth of this Outameni Scandal is revealed.
