Trinidad and Tobago’s Prime Minister, Kamla Persad-Bissessar and her Attorney General have filed pre-action protocol letters against Opposition leader Dr Keith Rowley as the fallout continues over an email scandal.
Kamla Persad-Bissessar – File
The letters are seeking to bar Rowley from repeating the statements or making defamatory statements, failing which, the parties will immediately seek injunctive relief before the High Court without notice.
Rowley has 14 days to respond to the letter.
On May 20, Rowley told the Parliament he had received 31 emails purporting to show correspondences among Prime Minister Persad-Bissessar and other government officials, in a sinister move to undermine the judiciary, the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution and the media.
The government officials have all denied the accusations.
The pre-action protocol letter alleges that Rowley, on May 23 at a public meeting continued to use the emails as the basis for his assertion.
