Hibbert considers lawsuit
Published: Thursday | July 16, 2009
Mabey & Johnson last week pleaded guilty to bribing public officials in Jamaica and Ghana in a British court, months after British officials named Hibbert a person of interest in their investigation.
"We will be taking the necessary action when the time is right," Hibbert's attorney, Ernest Smith, told The Gleaner yesterday. "As soon as the contractor general completes his report we will be seeking legal recourse."
Smith said he has the option of filing a lawsuit at this time, but does not want to cloud the issue.
"When the probes vindicate my client, then we will proceed," he said.
