Ramlogan wants Integrity Commission to reopen probe into “Inez-gate”

Former attorney general Anand Ramlogan has written to the Integrity Commission, calling for a re-opening of its investigation into Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley’s townhouse purchase in Tobago.

This comes as Rowley himself has called for the Integrity Commission to clear his name.

Last week during a political rally, the Prime Minister said the commission wrote to him and told him he was cleared of any wrongdoing after the Opposition asked that he be investigated.

Questions have been raised as to whether Rowley deliberately undervalued his townhouse to defraud the Board of Inland Revenue by paying less stamp duty; whether he would have received a discount on the property by a party financier had he not been the Prime Minister and that he “patently failed to maintain public confidence and trust.”

Ramlogan, on August 3, threatened to sue the Commission for its decision to discontinue investigations into Rowley.

His latest letter on Thursday raised 16 new complaints. Ramlogan also wrote to Commissioner of Police Erla Harewood-Christopher to have the Fraud Squad investigate the dealings.
