T&T gov't sues former Miss Universe Wendy Fitzwilliams
Trinidad's coalition People’s Partnership Government has filed a suit against former Miss Universe Wendy Fitzwilliams alleging that she failed to properly advise the directors of a state-owned company on entering into a TT$30 million investment in 2005 with the China-based Bamboo Network Ltd (BNL).
CANA News reports that Attorney General Anand Ramlogan, who has already initiated legal action against the board of directors of the Evolving Technologies and Enterprise Development Company Ltd (e TecK), has now joined Fitzwilliam, an attorney by profession who served as vice president and general manager of business development at the state state-owned entity.
Also named as a defendant in the amended lawsuit is the company’s former manager of business development, John Soo Ping Chow, who is accused of failing in his accounting duties related to BNL, and failing to properly advise the company’s board on the prudence of the investment, given the alleged absence of audited accounts for BNL.
The amended lawsuit was filed January 17.
