The Barkeepers & Operators Association of Trinidad & Tobago today issued an apology to the Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Rowley and the general public for statements made by their former interim President, Mr Teron Mohan.
In a statement issued this morning the Association said the unfortunate incident happened after the Prime Minister’s press conference on Saturday 21st November, 2020.
The Association said “the statement made was unprofessional and does not reflect nor represent the views of the Association’s executive and its members.”
It says “while the financial support offered to the employees is greatly appreciated, it may not adequately suffice the needs of the vast amount affected. It is much needed support for the industry especially during this Yuletide season. The association welcomes future support and co-operation if restrictions continue.”
The Association said it’s goal is to help its members by engaging in positive communication with necessary stakeholders and does not condone this behaviour in any way.
The Association’s executive has taken full responsibility for Mr Mohan’s unfortunate statement and the matter has been dealt with accordingly.
“We once again we would like to express our heartfelt apology over this incident and assure that there will not be a repeat of this.”
Meanwhile The Barkeepers & Operators Association of Trinidad & Tobago says Mr Teron Mohan is no longer the Interim President of the Association.
In a statement issued this morning the Association thanked Mr Mohan for his service and wished him success in his future endeavours.
The Association said their Vice President, Mr Satesh Moonasar, would now hold the position of Interim President, effective immediately.
