Calls intensify for dismissal of two senior TT ministers
PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, Sept 29, CMC – Seventeen organisations, including the main opposition People’s National Movement (PNM) and the Joint Trade Union Movement (JTUM), have called for the immediate dismissal of two senior government ministers including the Attorney General Anand Ramlogan as the debate continues over the early implementation of certain clauses of the Administration of Justice (Indictable Proceedings) Act.
The groups ended a meeting late on Friday night where they discussed the early implementation of section 34 of the act that critics say was aimed at ensuring the fraud cases against two government party financiers were dropped.
In a joint statement issued after the talks, the groups, which also included the Movement for Social Justice (MSJ), a former partner of the coalition People’s Partnership government, said that they wanted a “proper explanation for the surreptitious proclamation of Section 34 of Act No 20 of 2011” as well as “the immediate removal of the Attorney General and the Minister of National Security (Austin “Jack” Warner”.
“We are committed to further action to ensure that these actions are met,” the groups said without elaborating.
