There was no specification from the Prime Minister on when the money was received, however he revealed that it was sometime after former Planning Minister Dr. Bhow Tewarrie accused Government of holding the money while refusing to pay the cane workers.
Dr. Rowley also disclosed that the money sent was not meant for the former workers.
He said instead it was meant to replace what Government paid to them when Caroni closed.
However he stated that the present Administration would honor the commitment made by the former Government.
