Opposition determined to ensure Gov’t doesn’t act illegally in Property Tax execution

Former Transport Minister, Devant Maharaj

Former Transport Minister Devant Maharaj remains strong willed and focused on ensuring that the government of Trinidad and Tobago act in accordance with the constitution in the execution of the property tax law.
Last week, Maharaj filed an ex parte injunction before Justice Frank Seepersad in the San Fernando high court for leave to file for judicial review challenging the state’s move to compel citizens to submit the property tax forms.

Maharaj through his attorneys led by Anand Ramlogan SC contends that the property tax form and process are illegal, unconstitutional ultra vires, meaning beyond legal power or authority.
Speaking on the Power Breakfast morning show on Power 102.1 FM this morning, Mr. Maharaj said the general aim is to ensure that the government acts in accordance with the constitution.
