...'He hasn't left
Speaking to members of the media yesterday following the National Youth Productivity Forum hosted by the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham), at Hyatt Regency Hotel, Port of Spain, Gopeesingh said his son was still in the country and he did not want to say anything to jeopardise the investigations.
"Right now Shane is at home. He is possibly at work today," Gopeesingh said.
Asked if he would be taking his son to the police station for questioning, Gopeesingh said: "As you realise this is an ongoing police investigation that demands the fullest independence and the respect and I wish to honour that independence and as such I would want to reiterate my statement from yesterday (Wednesday) that it will not be fair for me to comment and leave the matter."
Asked if his son was co-operating with the police and about the presumption that his son would escape the law because of his father's status, Gopeesingh said he would leave all those comments for his son's attorney.
"Please allow me not to make any more comments on the matter...I think I have said enough on the matter, I think I've said what needed to be said on the matter. I will allow the independence of the investigation to continue without me interfering whatsoever and me making any statements whatsoever."
