T&T: PM offers phone, computer for probe

Trinidad and Tobago’s Prime Minister Kamla Persad Bissessar says she is prepared to hand over all her communication devices for scrutiny.

The comments came in the wake of a recommendation by the country’s Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) that an international forensic investigation be conducted into allegations of a plot by persons in her government to undermine the judiciary, the Office of the DPP and the media.

The controversy was triggered by a set of emails which Opposition Leader Dr Keith Rowley read in Parliament earlier this week purporting that Persad Bissessar and senior members of her government were involved in activities to undermine the institutions.

However, speaking to supporters yesterday at a rally to mark the third anniversary of her administration, Persad Bissessar said she was willing to hand over her computer, BlackBerry cellphone and anything else that is required for the investigation.

She insisted that the emails read by Dr Rowley were false.
