Opposition dismisses land over-valuation claims


    The Opposition says the Ministerial committee with oversight for the San Fernando to Point Fortin Highway had no role in valuation of land.

    This comes from former Works Minister Dr Suruj Rambachan in response to assertions of overvaluation made by Government as it announced a Commission of Enquiry into the process.

    Speaking at a media conference in Tunapuna, he dismissed claims that the committee was involved in untoward activity.

    Meanwhile, Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar says Government should go to the police if they have hard evidence and avoid what she deems “a witch-hunt”.
