Tracy Davidson-Celestine has threatened to sue Progressive Democratic Patriots (PDP) deputy leader Farley Augustine for defamation of character.
The PNM Tobago Council political leader, speaking at a PNM news conference on Monday at Pump Mill in Scarborough, said, “I have sought legal counsel on the matter raised by the deputy political leader of the PDP throughout the campaign. My legal counsel adviser has indicated to me that I have a very strong case and so I expect that a pre-action protocol letter would be served this week and soon after, I have instructed that we proceed with moving the matter to the court.”
During the January 25 THA election campaign, Augustine had called on Davidson-Celestine to answer to taxpayers about a $2.5 million zipline project during her previous tenure as tourism secretary.
Davidson-Celestine said “to date, almost three weeks going into four weeks after the Tobago House of Assembly elections, that evidence, those documents that he waved on the platform, has not yet been presented.”
