Sports Minister, Anil Roberts, has agreed to meet with the leadership of the Congress of the People (COP).

Minister Roberts will face the party to clarify his position about a controversial video that TV6 aired on its May 21 newscast.

COP General Secretary Clyde Weatherhead revealed that he received confirmation that Roberts had agreed to the meeting to discuss his position on the video.

The party requested a copy of the video from TV6 on May 22, and sent a written reminder yesterday since they are yet to receive the video.

Government has since said the video was “political mischief” by the Opposition People’s National Movement.

Sports Minister Anil Roberts yesterday confirmed he had met with Congress of the People political leader Prakash Ramadhar on two occasions in the last three days.

However, he declined to divulge the details of those meetings.
