Trinidad: Marlene awaiting charges

Public Administration Minister Marlene McDonald was taken to the Professional Standards Bureau (PSB) Headquarters, Henry Street, Port of Spain, on Sunday night, to await charges into alleged multi-million-dollar financial misappropriation when she held the office of Housing Minister.

She, along with her husband Michael Carew, and another man, arrived at the bureau after 9 pm and were quickly taken inside the building. McDonald, dressed in a pink shirt and black pants and a shawl, kept her head down and appeared frail as she slowly climbed the stairs. Police removed several bags, believed to belong to McDonald, from the trunk of the vehicle she was brought in before taking her inside.

She had been detained at the St Joseph Police Station since Friday.

McDonald’s attorney Pamela Elder SC, had arrived at the PSB Headquarters just after 7 pm on Sunday.
