Social media activist Suzette Louwe, through her attorney Emir Crowne, is seeking details on the bids and evaluations that led to the Patriotic Energy and Technologies Company Ltd (PETCL) topping the bidders list to obtain the Pointe-a-Pierre refinery.
The PETCL is wholly owned by the Oilfield Workers Trade Union (OWTU) and on Friday Finance Minister Colm Imbert announced that they were the preferred bidder to purchase the refinery for US$700 million.
The PETCL beat out Beowulf Energy and Klesh Energy to take the top spot.
But Louwe sought more details on what led to that selection.
According to the three-page filing made on Saturday, Louwe sought the instructions to all bidders for the sale and/or lease of the Peteotrin refinery, the bid documents of Beowulf Energy, Klesch and Patriotic Energies and Technologies Company Ltd and the working notes, notes, drafts minutes and/or minutes of Cabinets evaluation committee for the sale and/or lease of the Petrotrin refinery and of the Cabinet meeting that approved the sale and or lease to Patriotic.
The letter was sent to the Cabinet, at the Office of the Prime Minister in St Clair.
On social media yesterday, Louwe posted the documents and received praise for her FOIA.
Louwe often takes the People's National Movement to task on her social media page. Most recently, she levelled criticism at Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley over the cancelled housing contract with the Chinese contractors, calling it "crookery".
