Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Rowley today slammed claims made by the Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar that the government is linking with Venezuela for the sale of the refinery.
Speaking at a media conference this afternoon at the Diplomatic Center, St Ann’s, Dr. Rowely said comments coming from the Opposition Leader are a misrepresentation of Trinidad and Tobago.
He also said claims by the UNC that the Government is breaking U.S sanctions or linking the sale of the refinery to Venezuela is not true.
Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar during the United National Congress Monday Night virtual forum, called on the Government to implement and proclaim the procurement legislation, saying corrupt deals will take place with the sale of Petrotrin’s Pointe-a-Pierre refinery.
She also asked the Government if they already had a buyer in the pipeline for the refinery.
