Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Rowley, maintains that the cabinet will not get involved in Petrotrin's Internal Audit Report on the “Fake Oil” scandal
Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Rowley, maintains that the cabinet will not get involved in Petrotrin’s Internal Audit Report on the “Fake Oil” scandal involving A&V Oil which was supported and confirmed by two reputable global auditing firms.
Dr. Rowley indicated his government’s position on the hot topic during his response to a question posed on the matter by Point-a-Pierre Member of Parliament in the House of Representatives.
He was asked whether his government intends to immediately suspend the A&V Oil and Gas contract and refer this matter to the Fraud Squad for a criminal investigation.
Dr. Rowley said Petrotrin is probing the matter with the help of legal advice and while it is carrying out both internal and external audits government will allow due process to take its course.
