Roget promises legal action against PM

Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley wil have some legal issues to contend with soon, according to Union Head Ancel Roget.

The Oilfields Workers’ Trade Union (OWTU) President General has promised legal action against Dr Rowley for imputing his involvement in blocking the Solomon Hochoy Highway yesterday.

He made the announcement during an emergency virtual media conference yesterday.

Roget said the OWTU’s attorneys were scrutinising the defamatory statements posted on Rowley’s Facebook page around 9 am and expect to start legal action in the next 24-48 hours, as they deemed Rowley’s statement slanderous, libellous and defamatory.

Last week, Roget, as Joint Trade Union Movement leader, announced their support of the Scrap Iron Dealers’ Association and called on the Government to reopen the scrap iron industry. He and JTUM members also attended the association’s motorcade.

However yesterday, Roget vehemently denied he or the OWTU had prior knowledge or involvement in blocking the highway.
