New Trinidad attorney general at loggerheads with police commissioner


by Global News staff

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (GNC) — Newly appointed attorney general of Trinidad and Tobago, Anand Ramlogan, and acting Police Commissioner James Philbert are embroiled in a "war of words" so much so that the attorney general said that the Minister of National Security, Brigadier John Sandy, should call in his commissioner of police and deal with him firmly.

The Trinidad Guardian reported that the clash between the two top government officials arose over a controversial church at Guanapo, with Ramlogan accusing the acting commissioner of declining to act on looting and other acts of lawlessness at the Lighthouse of the Lord Jesus Christ,

But Philbert explained that he has been conducting investigations on the issue and has been liaising with the Director of Public Prosecutions, Roger Gaspard.

The attorney general hinted that Philbert, whose contract has been extended four times, could be sacked over the issue. His current three-month extension will expire September 30.
