Trinidad: Kamla-Petrotrin closure TT’s greatest economic debacle

Leader of the Opposition Kamla Persad-Bissessar has called on the Prime Minister to account to citizens for how the successor companies of Petrotrin have fared in the months since its closure on November 30.

“Given that Petrotrin’s operations were a central part of the social and economic fabric of several communities in the southwest peninsula, the shutdown of the company seven months ago has resulted in the devastation of many communities.”

In a statement yesterday she described as “unacceptable” that Dr Rowley had chosen to report on June 27 to PNM supporters (at a public meeting in Point Fortin) on this national issue.
