Political Analyst, Dr. Bishnu Ragoonath is disagreeing with the view voiced by some, that the appointment of Christian Mouttet as investigator in the Tobago ferry fiasco is a conflict of interest.
A report in today’s newspaper offers the view that it is a conflict of interest for the businessman whose distribution companies use the services of the cargo vessel, to be given such a task.
However, Dr. Ragoonath says it would be difficult to find someone who isn’t linked to this essential form of public transportation between both islands.
Dr. Ragoonath believes the greater issue is the question of Mr. Mouttet’s suitability for the job.
Mr. Mouttet has been given one month to present his findings to Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley.
