    Government’s COVID-19 exemption policy is being questioned by Opposition and UNC Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar.

    Speaking last night at a party meeting, she claimed that National Security Minister Stuart Young never presented the policy to Parliament for scrutiny.

    She is demanding that he explains where he gets the power to grant the exemptions to citizens stranded abroad due to the pandemic.

    Meanwhile, Mrs Persad-Bissessar turned her attention to the Evidence Amendment Bill which she said needed a special majority the last time it appeared in the chambers.
