ASKED IF he would resign, chairman of the Integrity Commission Ken Gordon yesterday queried whether there is a basis for any resignation on his part.
“On what basis would I resign?” Gordon told Newsday, speaking over the phone from the fourth floor offices of the Integrity Commission at Independence Square, Port-of-Spain.
Asked if he would resign given the views of many that the private meeting he held at his Glencoe home on May 15 with Opposition Leader Dr Keith Rowley potentially damages the appearance of impartiality of the Integrity Commission, Gordon said, “Anything that does damage to the Commission I am concerned about. I will make a statement. I think it is important that some of these issues be addressed. Nothing should be left without being addressed.” Had he communicated with President Anthony Carmona in any way over the issue? Had he met with the President?
“No,” he said. “No, I have not discussed it. I have not communicated with the President.” He said one of the issues he would seek to address was his decision not to reveal the identity of the senior counsel whom he retained to determine if the Integrity Commission had powers to probe purported email documents raised by Opposition Leader Dr Keith Rowley. He could not state when he would make his statement.
