LATT says it has a solution to AG/DPP issues

The Law Association of Trinidad and Tobago (LATT) is ready to assist in solving the issues between the Attorney General Reginald Armour and Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Roger Gaspard.

LATT has written to both officials saying that it has the necessary information that can bring about a solution to the matters impacting the operations of Gaspard’s office.

Outgoing LATT president Sophia Chote, SC, in a GML interview said, “I can say that LATT has written to the AG and DPP separately seeking a meeting, since, as a stakeholder in the criminal justice system, we are in possession of recent and historical information which permits us to offer our assistance to resolve some of the matters identified.”

Chote told the media house, “The LATT is of the view that there is no benefit to the public escalation of this matter. This distracts from the resolution of the serious issues to be considered, including the security of prosecutors and resources for the Office of the DPP.”
