PM seeks answers on minister’s son
Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar yesterday said she was seeking answers on a newspaper report about one of her minister’s sons being detained in the United States under a sealed indictment. Persad-Bissessar was asked about the issue after touring police stations in Arima and Maloney and visiting the Inter-Agency Task Force headquarters, Aranguez, San Juan, yesterday.
This week’s Sunday Guardian reported exclusively on the minister’s son, pointing out he was assisting law enforcement officers there with an ongoing investigation. Asked if she was concerned about it, Persad-Bissessar said: “I would be very concerned about anybody’s son and indeed if it was one of my ministers.” She said, however, she had “no information on any minister’s son who is in any circumstances abroad. I have no such information, advice or knowledge. I have asked.”
