Public Utilities Minister, Nizam Baksh says he is awaiting the findings of an internal audit by the Trinidad and Tobago Electricity Company into the controversial purchase of a reported luxurious vibrating executive chair.
A daily newspaper recently reported that the chair was valued at over $26,000.
However, speaking at the weekly post cabinet news briefing held at the Office of the Prime Minister in St Clair on Thursday, Minister Baksh said he was informed that the probe into the development should be completed in one week’s time.
He added that he had in his possession, a copy of an email sent by a senior T&TEC official, which highlighted concerns pertaining to the purchase of the executive chair.
Minister Baksh said he is hoping the probe brings the facts on the development and if there is need for action, such action will be taken accordingly.
