Ancel Roget has me confused. His utterances seem like those of the present Prime Minister and his Finance Minister—to change subtly over time. It was reported on October 17, 2018, in an interview with Roget, that the OWTU planned to propose a “lease to own” proposal to the Prime Minister. Mr Roget clearly stated that the OWTU’s plan was “not to own the company but to enter into a lease arrangement with an option to own at the end of the lease.” He further added that there would be “many options for the public and public institutions to take part in the plan.”
That report made mention of John Van Dyke of Sunstone Equity, who is quoted as stating that “the plan entails a capital lease where the refinery will eventually be owned by the corporation that would be installed to oversee operations.” Surprisingly Roget, in his response to statements made by Roodal Moonilal, as reported in the Express recently, insisted that his PET Co had no present dealings with Sunstone Equity and that they had parted ways since November 2018. PET Co is reported to have been incorporated in December 2018. Roget appeared in a photo in an Express article by Leah Sorias (Thursday, Page 3) alongside Van Dyke of Sunstone and Shaid Khan, VP of MAK England.
