PNM to AG: Stop legal moves against Opposition Leader
Quote:
Story Created: Apr 24, 2012 at 11:58 PM ECT
Story Updated: Apr 24, 2012 at 11:58 PM ECT
The People's National Movement (PNM) is calling on the Attorney General to "immediately withdraw" all legal actions against its leader, Dr Keith Rowley, who is Opposition Leader.
PNM general secretary Ashton Ford yesterday issued a release on behalf of the party calling on AG Anand Ramlogan to "cease and desist from behaviour that undermines the democracy and which are not in the interest of the citizens of our beloved country".
At a press conference on Monday, Rowley said several pre-action protocol letters sent by the AG arising out of statements he (Rowley) made in his capacity as Opposition Leader, would force him to hire attorneys and thereby face bankruptcy. "Every time he (Ramlogan) files a suit, I have to find a lawyer," Rowley stated.
The PNM release also said the party was urging Rowley to continue to vigorously pursue the following issues on behalf of the national community:
a) the role and conduct of the Attorney General in the extradition process of businessmen Ishwar Galbaransingh and Steve Ferguson;
b) the role of the Financial Intelligence Unit with respect to the State of Emergency;
c) the unexplained increase in the budgetary allocations in the Attorney General's office from $30 million in 2010 to $108 million in 2011 and $95 million in 2012.
"The PNM firmly believes that the Attorney General is using taxpayers' money in the most obscene manner to prevent Dr Rowley from acting on behalf of all right-thinking citizens of Trinidad and Tobago," the release stated.
The release added that the party wanted to remind the Attorney General and the government that no amount of bullying and intimidatory tactics would deter Dr Rowley from exercising his duty without fear or favour in accordance with the Constitution of Trinidad and Tobago.
Meanwhile, the PNM Women's League has expressed its "immeasurable abhorrence" of the "new and worrying trend" of the Attorney General, Anand Ramlogan to silence Opposition Leader Dr Keith Rowley by using State funds to bring legal action against him.
"Attempting to silence the Leader of the Opposition strikes at the very heart of our democracy and using taxpayers' money to do so, while Dr Rowley must pay out of his own pocket for legal representation in response, makes the AG's actions even more reprehensible," the League said in a statement signed by its chairman, Donna Cox.
The release stated Rowley was charged with the responsibility of monitoring what the Government does and does not do, as well as to raise matters of public interest.
"Dr Rowley is sworn to look after the best interest of the people of Trinidad and Tobago without fear or favour and does so with purpose and vigour.... The PNM Women's League stands in total solidarity with its Political Leader and Leader of the Opposition and calls on all right-thinking citizens to raise their voices in denouncing and rejecting the AG's attempt to intimidate and muzzle the Opposition Leader in the discharge of this duties which is an integral component of our democracy," the League said.

I still find it funny though. Rowley crying possible bankruptcy.

Seriously though if he made accusations to which he has no evidence then there is possible ground for a lawsuit. But on the other side he has asked questions to which we a population need to know the answers.

I'd also like to know why a budget would jump from 30M to 108M in a year.
Is a budget, not a Flow internet package.

And if Rowley really bumping his gum without evidence, then where's the harm?
Thing are supposed to be transparent, no?
And what's to worry about if there's no corruption? Show him the paperwork and let everyone laugh at him. It's his job to keep the PP in check. Filing suits against him using my money for doing his job is like.....it's like filing suits against him with my money for doing his job.

Even his comrade Wade Mark had to read Peter Joseph's letter into the Hansard after Ramlogan lied about SAUTT operations under Joseph. Mark had to warn him not to abuse the chair he sits in. Then he wants to pull this stunt?

i know is not just me that seeing that man crying round the place trying to get people on his side for every little thing right? if he wanted to help the PNM party give the title of leadership up... in a normal business unjust scrutiny can be seemed as vandalism on a person's character when blown out of proportion by our mediahouses. Make statements based on proof or let it go like the police did with the detainees of the SoE. Both faced and facing charges based on lack of evidence right?

do yuh sh!t and now you go cry bankrupcy... some of you all is the best at talking jed... get in a accident and doh have insurance and see if you doh get hold nah...

What's the big deal? If yuh want to go outside of parliamentary privilege and talk then make sure yuh have evidence to back up yuh talk and expect to face the court. Rowley doing like this is the first time.

Steups! Next WFT

Rowley's claim of bankruptcy is surely an embellishment, he surely has the capital (both local and offshore) and from his wife to the entire PNM legal team to provide legal counsel and representation. He is just throwing up his hands to draw attention.


But if the AG wants to go down this track then a guy called Calder Hart should sue many members of the UNC and COP who sought to portray him as a corrupt individual despite for the last four years there has not been any shred evidence of corruption. The most that could be of him is that he may have lied at the commission of inquiry.

Embellishment or not, it just looks weird for an opposition leader to be complaining about funds. Leave that for the true paupers.

Also, if Calder Hart feels he has a case that his integrity was brought into disrepute, no one is stopping him from suing. By all means, let him go right ahead.

Why can't Rowley exercise his role of raising legitimate questions about the government and keeping the PP in check without being libellous? All our previous Opposition Leaders knew how to criticise the government without exposing themselves to lawsuits.
If the court finds out that he did not slander Ramlogan, then the case is dismissed and he can claim costs from Ramlogan.

Hmmm, plenty people in this country knowingly take the blue pill, WOW!

Red pill and blue pill

A budget increase from $30 million to $108 million, that's a difference of $78 million, who wants to explain what it has done?

I really can't believe that the blue pill's effects are so potent

For all we know, some of the beneficiaries of that money probably reading this thread now, what else are you going to do when you start working in an office without an interview and there is no work for you to do, but you knew the right people.....
