PM hits back at claims in newspaper column

Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley has written to the Express newspaper, criticizing it for a column that he has labelled “offensive”.

The piece accuses the Government of convening a Special Select Committee on the selection of a Police Commissioner because of the race of the candidate.

Dr Rowley insisted that when the matter came up in the Parliament, he explained that there were important questions about the process that need to be answered.

The PM is also accusing Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar of completely reversing her position on this matter.

He says there are Hansard records which show that Mrs Kamla Persad-Bissessar had voiced support for the Committee, since she believed there was merit to for it to be convened.
