The Antigua and Barbuda government has announced an amnesty for people still struggling to deal with the financial impact of the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic that has killed 146 people and infected close to 9,100 since March 2020.

According to a statement issued following the weekly Cabinet meeting, it had been agreed that residential customers owing the Antigua Public Utilities, AP-U-A for electricity and water, who are in arrears before and up to December 31, 2021, will have their debts to AP-U-A forgiven.

The statement said “customers who pay the current month’s obligation, benefiting from this amnesty, will be reconnected by November 1, 2022”.  The statement went on further to say that “unpaid property taxes up to December 31, 2021 will also benefit from an amnesty programme, provided they pay the current year’s tax.
