The company at the epicenter of the Dry Harbour Mountain environmental controversy, Bengal Development, is not in good standing with the Companies Office of Jamaica, COJ.

Checks by Nationwide News have revealed that the company has not filed financial statements and income and expenditure documents with the COJ for three consecutive years – 2017, 2018 and 2019.

Documents obtained by our news centre are also showing that Bengal Development Limited owes the COJ $27,000.00 in filing and late fee penalties.

The company is listed as active with an address on Knutsford Boulevard in New Kingston.

The only director listed for Bengal Development is an entity by the name of Delilah Limited located in St Lucia.

No shareholders are listed for the company that was incorporated in March 2017.

But, the Secretary is a Hewanorra House, also in St Lucia.

A statement earlier this week noted that Bengal Development is a subsidiary of Jamaia World LLC.

Efforts to get a comment from the representative that issued the statement were unsuccessful.
