Trinidad: ‘AG must explain his wealth’ Kamla says if vendors have to do it then

IF the Civil Asset Recovery and Management and Unexplained Wealth Bill 2019 gives law officers the power to seize and forfeit a person’s property in the absence of a conviction and only on suspicion, then the Attorney General should be the first person to explain his wealth.

Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar made the comment yesterday regarding the legislation piloted by AG Faris Al-Rawi in the House of Representatives on Friday.

Referring to Al-Rawi as a lawyer who “never really won a big case in his life”, Persad-Bissessar expressed her own suspicions surrounding the purchase of a property for $2.5 million at 3 Alexander Place, St Clair.
