Members of the New Flying Squad Investigative Unit (NFSIU) cancelled a planned press conference yesterday.
The NFSIU, headed by retired police sergeant Mervyn Cordner, was scheduled to hold a media conference at what the unit called its headquarters at Factory Road, Piarco, at 10 a.m. yesterday.
It did not take place.
Trevor St Louis, the NFSIU's administration director, told the Express yesterday it was postponed until Monday.
He said things were still being sorted out before the men could take their story public.
He claims the unit has been dealt an unfair blow by the Ministry of National Security and Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar.
National Security Minister Jack Warner has consistently distanced himself from the alleged unit.
He has said no authority was ever given by his ministry to Cordner to form and operate such a unit.
Director of the National Security Operations Centre (NSOC), Garvin Heerah, in a report to the National Security Council headed by the Prime Minister and which was exclusively published in last week's Sunday Express, said while meetings were facilitated between Cordner and himself, no approval was ever given.
Heerah was instrumental in the leasing of eight vehicles to Cordner from a private company.
And last week, Persad-Bissessar passed the matter to acting Commissioner of Police Stephen Williams for investigation.
Williams has maintained he did not approve any revival of the unit when it was brought to his attention.
Cordner is said to be still pursuing legal options against the Ministry of National Security for $180 million in compensation.
