Russell Lancaster, the manager of the communications and production company owned by Minister of Public Telecommunications Cathy Hughes, says he was personally approached by the Department of Energy (DoE) concerning some work for the agency and in turn, asked that it be transferred to the company.

The veteran artist and producer/broadcaster on Tuesday night  sought to absolve Hughes from any blame that saw the company, Videomega Productions, receiving $832,200 from the DoE for work, saying she knew nothing of it.

“I was contacted by the department, and informed that based on my experience and knowledge of the industry, they would like to get an example of the kind of work that could be provided and it was I that informed them that I was now managing Videomega and would like the work to be contracted to the company as opposed to me personally,” Lancaster said in a statement issued to the press…..
