RADA executive director to contest 'unjust' termination

Published:Friday | May 27, 2016 | 5:19 AM

Attorneys have given the Rural Agricultural Development Authority (RADA) seven days to negotiate the issue surrounding the employment status of its executive director Lenworth Fulton.

Fulton, who has served as executive director since 2013, reportedly received a letter from RADA last Friday terminating his contract and indicating that it would not be renewed. 

Fulton's attorney John Junor says his client was also stripped of the keys to his office and the motor vehicle assigned to him by RADA.

He says this is despite Fulton being given a new three-year contract on May 2 of this year by RADA's board of directors.

Junor says Fulton will continue to operate as the executive director of RADA as his termination was unjust.

He says Fulton will take court action if there is no meeting with RADA officials within seven days.
