At his Press conference today, Rowley wriggled and squirmed at the podium attempting to defend his lying AG Armour and his nepotistic puppet President.
Today, the press release by the Law Association (LATT) confirms that no consultation was carried out with that body regarding these awards.
Reginald Armour has been caught lying again. He is an embarrassment to the office of AG and the worst this country has ever seen in our history. I call on him to have some decency and resign now! He is a failure, a liar and incompetent. He is destructive to our democracy.
The fact is, Rowley appointed a low-level PNM political functionary as President of our Republic to act as a puppet for himself. Christine Kangaloo was never qualified to be President and her nepotistic actions yesterday by awarding silk to her husband and brother further prove this.
The scheme was so distasteful, Rowley’s personal lawyer, Michael Quamina, who has also received millions in State briefs, was also undeservingly gifted silk.
The President’s husband and brother have gorged themselves on over 40 million dollars in State briefs. An additional 10.7 million dollars has been allocated in the mid-year review for the operation of her household.
AG Armour has also collected $17.5 million. Of this sum, $3.2 million was collected during his tenure. Junior attorneys in Armour’s Marie de Vere chambers, Vanessa Gopaul and Raphael Ajodhia, collected a total of $12.2 million.
The parasitic oligarchy of the PNM has now entrenched themselves as the parasitic oligarchy of the Trinidad and Tobago treasury.
