There is word today that a second legal letter has been served to Head of watchdog group Fixin’ T&T, Kirk Waithe.
The letter served on behalf of Angostura Ltd and its chairman Dr Rolph Balgobin reportedly questioned why Waithe was not advised by his attorneys to keep quiet on matters concerning both Angostura and Mr. Balgobin.
The letter comes one week after Waithe was served a pre-action protocol letter over what was described as a “highly offensive” and “defamatory image” published on Fixin’ T&T’s Facebook page on November 30 showing a mock-up of Angostura’s product, a bottle of Angostura 1919 rum.
Last month, Waithe called for a national boycott of Angostura products after Balgobin was cleared by Justice Rolston Nelson in October of sexual harassment levelled against him by a female executive who was fired two weeks ago.
Waithe also called for Balgobin to be removed as chairman pending a thorough, independent and transparent investigation.
