A five-year lease for the relocation of the General Post Office to the Town Centre Mall was forwarded to the treasurer last week for signature, Attorney General Carl Bethel said yesterday.

Bethel, however, was unable to confirm whether the lease has been signed as yet.

“It’s just a process. Everything was finalized late last week and it was forwarded for signature,” he told The Nassau Guardian.

“It could have already been signed; I don’t know. [But] everything takes time.”

Last October, Parliament passed a resolution for the government to enter into a lease agreement with the landlords of the mall for the relocation of the post office.

The mall is owned by St. Anne’s MP Brent Symonette and his brother. Symonette recently resigned from Cabinet for reasons he said were unconnected to the matter.
