Oropouche East MP Dr Roodal Moonilal has accused National Security Minister Fitzgerald Hinds of recommending several people for firearms users’ licences (FULs).
During yesterday’s sitting of the Joint Select Committee on National Security, Moonilal asked Hinds whether he would agree that prime ministers and ministers of government should not be recommending private citizens for FULs.
Hinds however said that he did not remember recommending anyone for an FUL.
Moonilal subsequently sent photos to the media of a WhatsApp conversation, purportedly between former police commissioner Gary Griffith and Hinds.
In the purported conversation, Hinds asks Griffith to consider approving FUL applications for members of his security detail.
