THE EDITOR: A sprinkling of persons seems to think Attorney General, Anand Ramlogan, is officially too vocal. They claim, a general cannot be on the frontline, so they prefer he be aloof, quietly giving legal advice to the Cabinet, if needed. I disagree.
One: Every AG is a Minister. All Ministers are parliamentarians. Parliament is the nation’s foremost talkshop. Let the AG talk!
Two: He’s also guardian of the public interest (GPI). His visibility will oscillate in step with contemporary threats to the nation’s welfare. The former regime glossed over the tremendous harm it inflicted. Successful detection of the culprits won’t happen, unless the public is fully notified of what occurred. That’s the GPI’s job. Let the GPI talk!
Three: Things must never be allowed to return to what prevailed before Mr Ramlogan’s appointment. His very proactive approach in carrying out his GPI duties has led to billions being returned, against all odds. Those monies didn’t go into his pocket, they went to the Treasury. Only those who inclined to undermine TT’s public interest would want to silence him.
