Kamla Persad-Bissessar yesterday stated that she had no prior knowledge of the allegation made by Central housewife Patricia Singh.
She claimed that it was the alleged incident on the Caribbean Airlines flight from Tobago last month which prompted her to fire Ramadharsingh.
The former minister allegedly threatened CAL flight attendant Ronelle Laidlow, 25, after refusing to comply with her instructions and inappropriately touched her when he reached for her ID badge which was pinned to her blouse. In that incident, Ramadharsingh had apologised for his behaviour on board the flight but denied he touched Laidlow.
In the latest allegation, Singh claims she was forced to conduct sex acts on the former minister in order to fast track her acquisition of a house from the Housing Development Corporation (HDC). Ramadharsingh has denied the allegations.
The police are currently investing the matter with reports that they questioned himn Monday.
Prime Minister Persad- Bissessar has stated that there were no plans to ask Ramadharsingh to step down as MP or from the UNC.
