The Supreme Court is today slated to begin hearing the application brought by Hanover Western MP Ian Hayles who is seeking to challenge a controversial report by the Office of the Contractor General (OCG).

Hayles is questioning the methods used by the OCG to gather material used to compile the report, which contains allegations of impropriety and conflicts of interest by the Hanover Western MP.

The lawmaker has received an injunction barring the tabling of the document in Parliament until the case is heard in court.

The report raises questions of irregularity and impropriety in relation to the construction of buildings by Hayles and his wife Charlotte.

According to the contractor general, the constructions were undertaken without approval from the Hanover Parish Council.
