Fixin T&T calls for AG to be fired

 Fixin’ T&T yesterday said the justice system in Trinidad and Tobago was being undermined by Prime Minister  Kamla Persad-Bissessar’s reluctance to fire Attorney General Anand Ramlogan SC as a result of the Jamal Sambury issue.  

In a press release yesterday Fixin’ T&T said, “Contrary to assertions by Mr Ramlogan that ‘no allegations have been made against the Attorney General’ in the ‘prisongate’ matter, the actions, decisions and language of former solicitor general (SG) Eleanor Donaldson-Honeywell SC, Master Patricia Sobion-Awai, Mr Justice of Appeal Allan Mendonca, the Prison Officers Association and Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Roger Gaspard SC suggest otherwise. The fact that the DPP has ordered a criminal investigation after the AG allegedly conducted an enquiry which found no wrongdoing is deeply troubling.”  

Fixin’ T&T said it maintained that the firing of  Ramlogan was overdue.  

“He must be fired immediately and not reassigned,” Fixin’ T&T said.
