Former attorney general of Trinidad and Tobago Ramesh Lawrence Maharaj has called for the resignation of three senior government ministers.

His call comes as the fallout continues from a police investigation into another former attorney general Anand Ramlogan.

According to a CMC news report, dismissed national security minister Gary Griffith presented the police with a report of a meeting at which he was being pressured to withdraw a statement he made in support of the Director of the Police Complaints authority David West.

Griffith reportedly told the police that Communication Minister Vasant Bharath, Housing Minister Dr Roodal Moonilal and Labour Minister Errol McLeod, were present at the meeting.

Last Monday Prime Minister Kamla Persad Bissessar removed both Ramlogan and Griffith from her Cabinet and called on the President Anthony Carmona to set up an independent commission to probe West.

And the former attorney general says the three government ministers could be accused of aiding and abetting the commission of the alleged crime being investigated.

Maharaj says both the Prime Minister and the Commissioner of Police have a duty to the public to act swiftly.
