THE UNITED States Embassy yesterday said it was not aware of any murder conspiracy involving a reporter who may have had contacts there, as it maintained that diplomatic relations with Trinidad and Tobago remain strong.
“We are aware of the statements by Dr Rowley in Parliament yesterday. We don’t have any comment to make,” the embassy’s public affairs officer, Alexander McLaren said yesterday.
Asked if the Embassy was aware of any alleged murder conspiracy involving a reporter with sources at the Embassy, McLaren said, “No.”
On diplomatic relations between both countries, McLaren said, “The United States has a strong relationship with the people of Trinidad and Tobago, and we are looking forward to the visit of Vice President Biden next week.”
In Parliament on Monday, Opposition Leader Dr Keith Rowley read out purported emails by Government officials apparently discussing ways to get rid of a female reporter, and querying what sources she may have had at the US Embassy.
