MATT Secretary Rejects Prospect of A&V Tour Invitation.

MATT Secretary Rejects Prospect of A&V Tour Invitation.

The invitation to media practitioners to tour A&V Oil Gas Limited facilities is being strongly rejected by the Media Association of Trinidad and Tobago.

Secretary of MATT, Vishala Ganesh in an interview with News Power Now this morning, said that the association is strongly against the attack on colleague, Christian De Silva of the Trinidad Guardian and is encouraging all journalists to reject the invitation to tour the facilities.

Ms. Ganesh said MATT cannot guarantee the safety of any journalist wanting to visit A&V Oil Limited in the event of another attack and thus strongly advised against the tour.

Ganesh said if A&V Oil and Gas Limited is serious about holding its company to account for what it has done they suggest that the company take full responsibility for any involvement in these brutal attacks, pay for his medical bills and replace the reporter’s equipment which was damaged.

She revealed that MATT who says that it awaits a response from the owner of A&V Oil and Gas Limited understands the Police Complaints Authority will also be conducting investigations.
