What ever happened to the Ottley Hall shipyard?

EDITOR: I would like to know what is the current status of the Ottley Hall shipyard, relative to its activity and numbers employed. Since its financial collapse and the exit of the Venezuelan proprietors, it seems that the Government deferred management to the “local investors”. Is a monthly lease being paid? How many workers are employed and what is the extent of their activities? 

   Other than the arrests made in relation to fake rocks containing marijuana off-loaded at Ottley Hall, I have not heard or read of any real shipyard activity. Could your newspaper provide some update? I haven’t seen any information being provided by the Government. Investigative journalism is our only real salvation. I will never lose faith in the power of a free press.
