There is no political motive for the extension given to Chief of Defence Staff, Brigadier General Rodney Smart.
This is according to Minister of National Security Retired Major General Edmund Dillon.
He told the media yesterday that it it also had nothing to do with the revelation by Dr. Roodal Moonilal of pictures alleged to be the children of Attorney General Faris Al-Rawi holding guns.
He made the comments while speaking to reporters during a break of the Standing Finance Committee’s Meeting on Monday.
He also disclosed that it was common practice to give an extension, noting that it was done by the previous administration during their time in office.
