Attorney General Anand Ramlogan revealed that the Government would seek independent legal advice in the matter.
The Attorney General also disclosed that former Attorney General and Senior Counsel Russel Martineau was one of the persons consulted, however he did not disclose the details of the advice.
Mr. Ramlogan’s comments on Keith Rowley’s accusation that he knew about the housing allowance via the Housing Committee did have a hint of sarcasm.
In fact he issued a challenge to the Opposition leader to support his claims.
Mr. Ramlogan also criticized Dr. Rowley on the issue he raised concerning the date of the 2015 General election.
