Approx. 2 min read

Trinidad and Tobago soca artiste, Neil ‘Iwer’ George has threatened legal action against state owned, NIDCO (National Infrastructure Development Company), arising out of the company’s indecision following his sole bid for the purchase via auction, of three vessels last year.

According to legal documents obtained, it is noted that George, the owner of radio station, TriniBashment 91.9FM, placed bids for the purchase of the HSC Milancia, the HSC Olivia, and the HSC Katia, on December 29th, 2022. Following the bidding process, George received a letter issued by the Port Authority of Trinidad and Tobago, indicating that his bid submission had in fact been received for and on behalf of NIDCO, however there has been no further correspondence from either company.

Iwer, documented as the sole bidder in the process, is now demanding that NIDCO and PATT prepare and execute the Sale Agreement to transfer the vessels to him. George’s attorney, Annabelle Davis has offered a 28 day timeframe, following which she warns legal action will proceed, should either of the parties ignore the pre-action protocol letter.

Iwer George is the owner of the the Coral Vision party boat. It is not yet known what his plans are, relative to the acquisition of three additional vessels.

In June 2012, the Trinidad Express newspaper reported the four water taxis, which cost tax payers in Trinidad and Tobago some $133 million dollars, were sold for $6 million. The vessels were purchased by the People’s National Movement government, according to that report. The vessels that were in fact bid upon by George, in December 2022, were among the four that were said to have been sold. They had cost tax payers $12 million each.
