(Trinidad Guardian) Attorney General Faris Al-Rawi should have recused himself from dealing with Petrotrin’s case concerning Malcolm Jones and the World GTL project, since the AG’s uncle, Lenny Saith, was energy minister supervising the process when the project began, says Opposition MP Roodal Moonilal.
“So uncle start it and nephew finish it,” Moonilal declared in Parliament yesterday.
“The AG misconducted himself, it is the biggest political scandal and cover-up. This is ‘Jones 34.’ What they (PNM) accused the PP of, they actually did,” he said.
The accusation was one of several Moonilal levelled at Al-Rawi while piloting a motion of no-confidence against him, based on Al-Rawi’s handling of the $1.2 billion claim brought by Petrotrin—under the past administration—against Jones for breach of duty as executive chairman in the failed Gas To Liquids (GTL) project.
