Opposition Leader calls for Police investigation into Ocean Flower 2 developments

Meanwhile, Opposition Leader Kamla Persad –Bissessar is of the view that the government’s handling of the procurement of the Ocean Flower 2 vessel warrants a police investigation.

She said it is not enough to simply cancel the contract, Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley must account to citizens.

Mrs Persad Bissessar pointed out that it is her intention to write to the Canadian authorities calling for an investigation into the transaction involving the Canadian company Bridgemans Services Group LP.

She claimed that several questions must now be answered, including: were advances paid and if so, to whom?, were there any finder’s fees, legal fees or any other fees and to whom were these fees paid, were specifications given for the vessel, if so who developed them, who took the decision to lease and on what basis and when was the lease signed and by whom?
