Letter: Why no action?
Published on December 31, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

Dear Sir:

This I have been reliably informed of thus far.

Someone or some ones is/are trying to get certain people removed from the board of directors of Petrotrin and to accomplish this they have engaged in nationwide acts of sabotage to provide an environmental disaster that could be used as justification to call for the board's removal.

There are certain lucrative contracts rumoured to be worth hundreds of millions of dollars that this board is allegedly blocking, so the oil on the beaches and the oil killing the animals?

That is negotiation at this level. It is strong arming and thuggery, and those individuals need to be unmasked, identified, charged and prosecuted.

Reminiscent of what took place at National Quarries recently, it is a new trend where the management is targeted to be exploited to achieve 'ends.'

I am baffled as to why there was no investigation, arrests and charges at National Quarries, and I am equally baffled as to the government's handling of this latest attempt.

It seems that this country can benefit from an independent 'third force' in government, with oversight responsibility and power.

Brian Chambers:

I would be hard pressed and so should others, to believe anything said by Mr Alexander as his action in response to my attempt to have an open debate on the action taken by the Honorable Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar to reduce the price of rice, flour and oil was to delete my account from his facebook group. What an utter shame on you Mr Alexander, what a shame. Mr Alexander's email is probably yet another attempt of subterfuge in order to deflect the blame from his political party's administration. What a shame.
