In a statement issued last evening, the commission said that it is satisfied that there is insufficient grounds for continuing the investigation into the matter. This statement was sent to Prime Minister Kamla Persad Bissessar’s attorney, Mr. Israel Khan, Senior Counsel.
On receiving the letter of vindication, the Prime Minister described the development as a major victory as their ruling effectively clears her and the Parliament of any impropriety with respect to the allegations of fake emails, brought to the fore by Opposition Leader, Dr. Keith Rowley.
In her statement, Mrs. Persad Bissessar said now the country can move on to what she coined the real issue, that being the Opposition Leader’s actions in misleading the Parliament and impugning members of the Government. She said the Opposition Leader’s leadership is called into question and she says this proves that Dr. Keith Rowley is unfit to lead Trinidad and Tobago.
