PM concerned Opposition’s comments could sink refinery deal

Allegations raised in the Parliament by Oropouche East MP Dr Roodal Mooni­lal against the Oil­fields Work­ers Trade Union fi­nanciers to take over the re­fin­ery may top­ple the en­tire deal.

That is an area of concern for Prime Min­is­ter Dr Kei­th Row­ley as he said the questions rais­ed by Mr Moonilal about who would ben­e­fit from the sale of the re­fin­ery, and assertions that the Prime Min­is­ter was in­volved in some un­der­hand­ed bid to sell off the re­fin­ery for pri­vate prof­it, could potentially hinder the OW­TU’s chance of se­cur­ing a loan.

Speaking at the Peoples National Movement post-Budget public meeting at Pigott’s Corner, Belmont last night, Dr Rowley likened Mr Mooni­lal’s state­ments to what he described as the neg­a­tive re­ports that jeop­ar­dised the Tobago San­dals project.
