‘I will take legal action against the PM’
Yesterday, PNM Tobago PRO Denise Tsoi-a-Fatt-Angus, in response to Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar’s allegation concerning her involvement in the sale of land to Dankett Ltd, said, “It was shameful for a woman of such stature to come to Tobago to attempt to slander an upstanding family of this island.”
Tsoi-a-Fatt-Angus said she intends to take legal action against the PM. “That is the only way I can begin to clear up what she has done. They clearly did not know how to link the lies for her.” Tsoi-a-Fatt-Angus said the deed would show that her name was not on the land. “It showed my mother, uncle and uncle-in-law Fitzherbert Phillips.”
In 1999, when the land was sold, Tsoi-a-Fatt-Angus said, the PNM was not in power, it was the DAC. “How could they link a piece of land sold in 1999 to an event that took place 14 years later and say we would have gained from that?” Tsoi-a-Fatt-Angus said this would affect her mother’s pharmacy and image as a businesswoman.
With regards to her salary, Tsoi-a-Fatt-Angus asked: “How can you relate that to being the PRO of the PNM? I became the PRO after I got my job.” Appointed senior adviser to the secretary of Health and Services in 2009, “I am a qualified doctor, a specialist in my field. I have 20 years’ experience under my belt. Those were the conditions under which I was brought into the institution.”
She explained that she had to close down her private practice before accepting the job. Tsoi-a-Fatt-Angus is a family practice specialist. “When I negotiated my package, I negotiated at that level. When one looks at the doctors in Tobago, it is in alignment with my colleagues.”
PNM Leader Dr Keith Rowley, in a CNC3 report last night, described the PM’s actions as shameful and said she should have got her facts right. He called on her to apologise to Tsoi-a-Fatt-Angus. (SH)
