By BBN Staff: At today’s sitting of the house, Prime Minister Dean Barrow said that government has not finalized the purchase deal with the owners of Chon Saan Palace in Belmopan.
The establishment is owned by the President of the Senate, Lee Mark Chang who is asking for 1.65 million dollars.
Government is making an effort to purchase it to house a new headquarters for the Immigration Department.
According to PM Barrow, there are sponsors who want to donate a new passport machine but they need the space to house it.
The asking price for the property is too much says Barrow and so government got an independent and professional valuator who valued the building almost 300,000 less than the asking price.
The PM said that the only way the purchase will be made is if the seller accepts the value made by the valuator.
