MP wants reason for trip by National Security Minister


    Naparima MP, Rodney Charles, wants to know the reason for a trip taken by National Security Minister, Fitzgerald Hinds.

    This week, the Ministry said that Mr. Hinds would be overseas “on official business” between April 19th and 21st.

    There were no further details.

    In a release, Mr. Charles said he tried to put the matter forward yesterday as an urgent question in the Parliament, however it was not approved.

    He claims to have also been refused a motion for adjournment of the House to debate the crime situation.

    The MP insists that since it is a taxpayer funded trip, there must be details regarding the reason for the trip, who accompanied him, and the full cost.
