‘I never knew anything about the ‘Cabo Star’*

until...Bridgemans placed it on the table’

Suspended acting CEO of Trini­dad and Tobago Inter-island Transport (TTIT) Leon Grant maintained yesterday he did not receive any e-mail from Oscar Ruano, CEO of Baja Ferries.
He was responding to a question from member of the Joint Select Committee Wade Mark on the issue which had been raised by the Prime Minister in his testimony on Monday.
Noting the Prime Minister told the committee the country could have saved some US$5,000 to US$6,000 a day (over US $1 million a year), Mark asked whether Grant received correspondence from Ruano. However, in reading the e-mail address to Grant, Mark said the e-mail address given by the prime minister was leong@patt.com. However, the Express, has a copy of the document which forms part of the appendices submitted with the Christian Mouttet report and it indicates the e-mail address to which Ruano sent his letter was leong@patnt.com.
