AG responds to call for COI into COVID-19 spending


    The Attorney General claims there has been transparency around government’s COVID-19 expenditure.

    Mr Faris Al Rawi’s statement follows a call last night by Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar for a Commission of Inquiry.

    At a media conference this afternoon, the AG said the UNC head is entitled to her request but believes any concerns have already been answered by government’s full disclosure.

    He believes the Finance Minister has “laid bare” and questions have been answered in Parliament.
