It is unsatisfactory that the Attorney General’s Office will issue a scanty Press Release to inform the citizens that the Attorney General will be out of the country on official business. It is highly suspicious that the Attorney General suddenly departs Trinidad and Tobago for 2 days after mounting public pressure from the sordid Miami Court imbroglio.
The Attorney General remains with many questions hanging over his head as to why he declared to a US Court under the penalty of perjury that he was a junior lawyer restricted to taking notes on behalf of his former clients. After retaining the new firm White & Case LLP, he has failed to inform the citizens of the monies paid to this law firm and what will be the cost of the appeal due to his disqualification in the matter. The Attorney General must end his silence in this matter. Instead of providing answers to the citizenry, he suddenly left for a trip abroad.
Since the taxpayers are funding this official business trip the population demands to know:
Where is the Attorney General travelling to?
What is the nature of the business he will be conducting on behalf of Trinidad and Tobago?
What will be the cost of this trip to the taxpayers?
Additionally, the Attorney General must disclose the itinerary for this official business trip.
Many are hopeful that the Attorney General has travelled to officially inform the substantive Prime Minister who is abroad that he will be tendering his resignation.
