Trinidad: Rowley tells attorney to sue Moonilal

THE Prime Minister yesterday began a libel lawsuit against Oropouche East MP Dr Roodal Moonilal over claims he (Dr Keith Rowley) has a dubious Florida bank account, and he asked local authorities to investigate.

This comes two days after Moonilal alleged on Tuesday during the budget debate in Parliament, that Rowley had an account with someone named Vidya Deokiesingh, the same as a Petrotrin employee named in the AV Drilling “fake oil” scandal. Rowley has described the allegation as a “monstrous lie.” He had vowed to sue Moonilal for allegedly referring to the claim outside of Parliament.

Yesterday, a statement from the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) said the PM was advised he has legal recourse and has instructed his attorney to file a suit for libel against Moonilal and United National Congress (UNC) alderman and the party’s Women’s Arm PRO Marisa Ramlogan.
