The attempt by Attorney General Faris Al Rawi to defend the indefensible shows that the entire Cabinet is following Keith Rowley’s lead in this egregious cover up.
Rowley has been caught red handed in a lie involving former Minister of Sport and Youth Affairs Darryl Smith. After telling the nation that the reason the report on the serious allegations against Mr. Smith could not be made public was because the committee did not interview Mr. Smith; it has now come to light that is untrue.
It is now clear via documents published in the media that not only did officials at the Ministry of Sport try to whitewash the serious accusations of sexual harassment against Mr. Smith, but the Prime Minister himself suppressed the report, by bold facedly lying to the nation.
Keith Rowley has revealed his true face and that of his government. He is prepared to lie and undermine the law to protect the malfeasance of his friends and Ministers. He has put his PNM colleague over the people of Trinidad and Tobago.
The entire nation now sees that Keith Rowlley is fully prepared to debase the office of Prime Minister to protect a man accused of being a sexual predator.
The attempts by high level Government officials to characterise a young woman being sexually harassed and being subsequently dismissed for reporting what happened as a trade dispute must be resoundingly condemned by everyone. They are now using their power to diminish and dismiss this despicable act
After this latest disgrace Keith Rowley has no option now but to resign immediately.
