LETTER OF THE DAY - IMF no panacea for Jamaica's economic woes

WHERE GREY areas exist in the interpretation of a law, as in the present case of the Office of Contractor General's (OCG) jurisdiction and powers, the courts are the proper place to seek a resolution. So to hear the Opposition Leader refer to the impasse as "untenable" is, indeed, a disingenuous stance.
