Smith’s lawyer wants copies of sexual harassment allegations destroyed

The Attorney of for­mer Sport and Youth Af­fairs min­is­ter, Dar­ryl Smith, is de­mand­ing that the Gov­ern­ment de­stroy all copies of the re­port in­to allegations of sexual harassment, the firing and subsequent pay­ment of $150,000 to his for­mer per­son­al as­sis­tant, Carrie-Ann Moreau.

Sources say a let­ter was sent to At­tor­ney Gen­er­al Faris Al-Rawi on Fri­day by Annabelle Sook­lal who al­so ac­cused Prime Min­is­ter Dr Kei­th Row­ley of giv­ing the me­dia mis­lead­ing in­for­ma­tion and try­ing to di­min­ish Mr Smith’s claim of a breach of nat­ur­al jus­tice.

In a pre-ac­tion pro­to­col let­ter Sooklal al­leged that it was now appar­ent that all the me­dia hous­es in T&T had copies of let­ters between her­self and the Of­fi­cer of the Prime Min­is­ter, with at least one me­dia house al­leg­ing to have a copy of the re­port.

In light of this and what she deemed to be a fa­tal­ly flawed re­port that has the po­ten­tial to dam­age her client’s rep­u­ta­tion, Ms Sooklal de­mand­ed that the At­tor­ney Gen­er­al not on­ly de­stroy copies of the re­port but take le­gal steps to pre­vent its pub­li­ca­tion.
