IPI reprieve on community benefit fund amidst new dispute and lawsuit

The CNMI Lottery Commission approved Imperial Pacific International’s request to extend for three years the deadline to pay its US$20 million community benefit fund contribution and to defer for five years the payment of the US$36 million that IPI failed to remit in previous years. Meanwhile, construction woes continued with a new lawsuit against IPI and a dispute with the construction engineers.
