2013-08-31 18:46:15 | (0 Comments)
Trinidad and Tobago’s Prime Minister Kamla Persad Bissessar and several government ministers are now being investigated by the Integrity Commission for allegedly trying to undermine the judiciary, the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions and the media.
It is reported that the police are also investigating the allegations.
In confirming its probe, the Commission released a statement today saying it was being done in keeping with the provisions of the Integrity in Public Life Act.
It comes months after Opposition Leader Dr Keith Rowley informed Parliament that he had 31 emails purporting to show correspondence between Mrs. Persad Bissessar, Attorney General Anand Ramlogan, Local Government and Works Minister Suruj Rambachan and security adviser Gary Griffith outlining the plot.
The government ministers have since filed pre-protocol letters against Mr. Rowley as a prelude to possible legal action against him.But the commission says the probe will determine the authenticity of alleged electronic mails provided to the commission by former president, Professor George Maxwell Richards.
