Parliament new temp oneMembers of the Upper House of Parliament are expected to pay tribute to one of their former colleagues, Senior Counsel (SC), Dana Seetahal.

The Senate debate begins at 1:30 pm.

Minister of National Security, Gary Griffith will be asked several questions by Opposition Senator; Camille Robinson-Regis related the length of time S.C Seetahal and three other attorneys provided consultancy services to the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service.

SC Seetahal, SC Pamela Elder, SC Israel Khan and SC Theodore Guerra were hired during the 2011 State of Emergency to consult and advise the police service on the arrest of several persons under the Anti-Gang legislation.

The four senior counsels also assisted with the gathering and preparation of evidence against certain persons who were arrested.

Mrs. Robinson-Regis also wants to know the fees the lawyers were paid.
