The Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) is considering whether to take the Government and the board of the National Housing Trust (NHT) to court over the controversial Outameni purchase.

It's part of a series of reactions since The Gleaner reported that the NHT has spent $180 million to buy the Trelawny-based property, which critics say is outside of the mandate of the Trust.

According to Holness, there is a strong case against the government and the board of the NHT.

Holness says while court action may be costly, the JLP is considering seeking assistance from the private sector.

In Parliament yesterday, the Opposition tabled more questions on the Outameni scandal for the Prime Minister to answer in 21 days.

The Opposition has also threatened a censure motion if the Prime Minister does not come clean on the controversial deal.
