Dean Jonas is challenging his termination as an advisor

You can now listen to Antigua News articles!

Dean Jonas

​Dean Jonas has written a detailed and compelling response to Prime Minister Gaston Browne’s letter revoking his appointment as Advisor to the Minister responsible for the Blue Economy.

He disagrees with the decision to revoke his appointment and believes it is based on inaccurate information and unwarranted speculations.

Jonas, a former government minister, claims that his termination was executed without due process, which presents a strong case for wrongful termination.

He suggests that the Prime Minister seek additional advice regarding his decision and consider his response in good faith.

After all, he was appointed by the Cabinet of Antigua and Barbuda, and his appointment letter clearly stated that the Minister responsible for the Blue Economy would provide the terms of reference for his role as the advisor.

He said he has not been granted an audience despite his efforts to engage with the Minister responsible for the Blue Economy, both virtually and in-person.

He is convinced that the technical advice that influenced the Prime Minister’s decision to terminate his appointment is flawed and should be scrutinized.

Jonas hopes that the Prime Minister will reconsider his decision and that they can resolve this matter amicably to prevent any further disruptions to the government’s operations.

In his letter, he reminded the PM that lengthy and protracted labor relations negotiations and hearings would only distract from the vital work of the government.

Below is a copy of both letters.
