Warner accuses PP ministers of ‘sex ring’, dirty contracts
A government minister is being accused of running a “sex ring” at his ministry.
Another is said to be aware that the Government-run Unemployment Relief Programme (URP) contracts in east Trinidad were being sold, while a third is alleged to have handed out three lucrative contracts, without proper procurement procedure, to a company in which his daughter’s friend is one of the owners.
The allegations are the latest in a series by interim political leader of the Independent Liberal Party (ILP) Jack Warner against members of the People’s Partnership Government.
Speaking at an ILP meeting at the Ojoe Road, Sangre Grande last night, Warner told supporters that the PP government had become “power hungry” and “vulgar”.
Warner slammed one minister for running what he called a “sex ring” at the ministry, where he alleged, “Employees are forced to have sex for favours.”
“I have names and places and dates of the persons involved,” he said adding that when one of the employees complained about the matter, she was fired.
Warner also alleged that another minister was using his office to benefit friends and family.
He said three contracts were given to a friend of the minister’s daughter without proper procedure being followed.
He said he even had evidence about the country’s youngest ever holder of a diplomatic passport was.
But he added, “Tonight is not for that.”
