COP Party Chairman, Carolyn Seepersad Bachan is this morning saying that the party took the highest action possible, based on its constitution, in relation to the Anil Roberts issue.
Mrs. Bachan speaking in a televised interview explained that the COP Constitution does not allow for expulsion of members.
Minister of Sport, Anil Roberts has been suspended by the Congress of the People. Saying that Roberts’ complete removal from the government will be a decision to be made by Prime Minister Kamla Persad Bissessar, Mrs. Seepersad Bachan said as far as the COP was concerned, the minister has breached the party’s code of ethics.
The COP Chairman also said the party has recommended that Minister Roberts step down from his government position.
