A media release from the Office of the Prime Minister issued yesterday stated that Mr. McComie’s comments were unfortunate and regrettable.
They said his comments were not shared by the Office of the Prime Minister, or the Prime Minister and members of the Government.”
At last Thursday’s post-Cabinet press briefing, McComie invited members of the media to pose questions to Foreign Affairs Minister, Winston Dookeran and Health Minister, Dr Fuad Khan.
In his comments, McComie stated that it was for the Ministers to decide if they are not going to respond if the Media ask silly questions. He went further to say if members of the media did not behave that, they will stop giving them food.
The Office of the Prime Minister regrets that these offensive statements were made and apologises to members of the media
