Members of the Movement for Social Justice staged a protest in front of the Ministry Of Sport on Thursday, calling for the removal of Sport Minister Anil Roberts.
Public Relations Officer of the MSJ, Gregory Fernandes, spoke on behalf of MSJ Political Leader, David Abdullah, who is currently in the Dominican Republic attending a conference.
Mr. Fernandes said they will stage protest action every week until the Sport Minister is removed.
Members of the Joint Trade Union Movement were also present to support the call for the removal of Mr. Roberts.
Leader of the JTUM Ancil Roget claimed it is unfair to pass the blame to public servants.
He added that all the allegations took place under the purview of the Sport Minister and he should be held accountable.
He also called on Prime Minister, Kamla Persad Bissessar to fire Mr. Roberts.
President of the Banking and General Workers Trade Union, Vincent Cabrera, said that he is curious as to why the Prime Minister cannot or will not fire Mr. Roberts.
