When asked about his relationship with the MP from South St Andrew Dr. Omar Davies, Mr. Burke said he wished not to comment.

He also refused to comment on his meeting with the Contractor General who is probing allegations that political parties received kick backs from large Chinese firms.

Mr. Burke says if summoned again to face the Contractor General he will go freely.
