Ramadhar: Rule of law threatened by continued ’emailgate’ speculation


    St Augustine MP Prakash Ramadhar says the rule of law is being undermined by suggestions that there is more to the ‘emailgate’ affair.

    The matter, raised in 2013 and investigated since then, was finally put to rest by the TTPS a couple weeks ago.

    However, the Attorney General was cited in a media report as saying the issue is far from over.

    Mr Ramadhar believes it is dangerous for high officeholders to say such things after no evidence was found to support the allegations, since it attacks the very foundation of our constitutional democracy.

    As such, Mr Ramadhar says it is more important now that we strengthen institutions and respect them while those in high office must nurture their positions with honour, dignity and truthfulness.
