Correction to Port Suspension Story

An article by Rosemarie Sant titled “Fired Port boss told to stay quiet by lawyers” published on page 3 of today’s (Thursday October 12, 2017) Trinidad and Tobago Guardian newspaper erroneously states “Grant was suspended several weeks ago after Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley, when he appeared before the JSC, raised concerns that Grant failed to bring to the attention of the board an email from the Cabo Star owners of an offer to lease the vessel to the country.”

This statement and its implications of the incorrect timelines are completely erroneous since Mr. Leon Grant was suspended by the board on August 15, 2017 and Prime Minister Rowley appeared before the JSC on September 18, 2017.

Further to this, it should be noted that the suspension of Mr Grant was reported in the said newspaper on August 16, 2017. The newspaper also reported on the Prime Minister’s appearance before the Joint Select Committee on September 19, 2017.
