Vin gives in - Urban Development Corporation (UDC) boss quits all state boards
published: Tuesday | July 25, 2006

Following damning criticism in Jamaican Contractor General Greg Christie's report on the Sandals Whitehouse hotel project, Dr. Vin Lawrence, chairman of the Urban Development Corporation (UDC), has resigned from all Government boards and committees he was associated with. Dr. Lawrence's move appeared to confirm reports in The Jamaica Gleaner last week which indicated he had been asked to step down from all state boards in the wake of the allegations of glaring breaches of Government procurement procedures. Yesterday, the other 16 UDC board members indicated they were willing to tender their resignations to Jamaican Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller. They were, however, asked by the Prime Minister to remain in place to answer questions that may arise from the completion of the forensic audit team report, which is due in two weeks.
