Mark Golding, Opposition Spokesman on Finance, has said he will be defending the defamation suit filed against him by Energy Minister Dr. Andrew Wheatley.
Dr. Wheatley on Wednesday filed a suit in the Supreme Court for what he described as defamatory comments posted by Mr. Golding on his Facebook page.
The comments related to the recent arrest of two employees of State-run entity National Energy Solutions Limited (NESOL).
Dr. Wheatley is seeking general and aggravated damages.
However, in a Facebook post, Mr. Golding said while he notes the lawsuit, his heart and conscience are clean.
