Wesley Kirton says that a civil complaint filed against him in a Florida Court regarding corporate matters concerning Cel*Star Guyana Inc is being addressed by his attorneys in accordance with the procedures of the Florida Court.

In a press statement, Kirton said that in the meantime, Cel*Star Guyana Inc, its parent company Trans World Telecom Caribbean (TWTC) and himself remain committed to the build-out and operation of the GSM 900 cellular Network. Kirton said that the civil complaint is an attempt to frustrate progress towards the launch of Cel*Star service.

In the release, he is quoted as saying that he has worked long and hard to facilitate this major investment in the Guyana economy which will significantly improve the country's telecommunications infrastructure and offer Guyanese an affordable cellular telephone service and that he will not be deterred from this mission.

Kirton says that he remains fully involved in and associated with the operations of Cel*Star Guyana Inc and will spare no effort in ensuring the launch of the service.

The release indicates that Cel*Star Guyana Inc is working hard to be able to launch the service as soon as possible. However, it says, it is anticipated that the civil action may result in some further delays.

The release also noted that there was no record at the Companies registry of any shares being issued to Cel*Star Caribbean.

Stabroek News has made several efforts to interview Kirton on matters concerning the company and raised in the legal proceedings, but he has indicated that his lawyers have advised him not to respond at this stage.
