UNC Deputy Leader says independent review of safety at Niquan needed


    UNC Deputy Leader David Lee says independent specialists should look into the safety of Niquan’s operations on the Petrotrin compound.

    Mr Lee, who is also the MP for Pointe a Pierre, believes this morning’s explosion at the plant was not “out of the blue.”

    Instead, he claims, there have been reports of issues at the facility since its commissioning a month ago.

    He says Niquan must also present the findings of the transparent review of the safety of its operations in relation to the other plants on the Petrotrin compound as well as the risks posed to the community.
