The Opposition Leader Dr. Keith Rowley, has sent a pre action protocol letter to the Prime Minister, Kamla Persad Bissessar.
The letter, which was submitted by Al Rawi and Company, was sent to the Prime Minister Wednesday and outlines several statements, deemed defamatory between the period May 2013 and May 12th, 2015.
The statements made by Mrs. Persad Bissessar against the Opposition Leader were all in reference to the Emailgate fiasco, which remains under investigation.
The Opposition Leader notes that Mrs. Persad Bissessar or someone acting on her behalf, took to social media network, Facebook where a post was made following her receipt of a letter from California based ComputerLaw Group LLC, which sought to vindicate the Prime Minister based on information allegedly received from Google Inc. relative to the Emailgate investigation.
In the Facebook post, the Opposition Leader noted that the Prime Minister dubbed him a liar and despite the fact that the investigation is yet to be completed, the Prime Minister’s words on Facebook perpetrated that the Opposition leader had in fact created fake emails for bogus charges.
The pre-action Protocol letter states that the Prime Minister has until Monday, May 18th at 4pm to respond, failing which steps will be initiated to vindicate Dr. Rowley’s reputation.
