Shaw has been under even more pressure since it was revealed that he negotiated with his service provider for a $1 million discount on his $8.34 million cell phone bill incurred in one year.

The Gleaner had inaccurately reported that Digicel was the service provider.

“The media has a responsibility to disseminate accurate and factual information to the public – a responsibility that should in no way be taken lightly,” a Digicel spokesperson said in a release.

Digicel says it takes serious umbrage to the inaccurate reports and has requested a public apology.

*The Gleaner apologises and regrets the error or any inconvenience this may have caused.
