Former T&T councillor charged with perverting course of justice

Dhansook, who will re-appear in court in July, had alleged that he paid former works and transport minister Franklin Khan and former energy minister Eric Williams for securing contracts from a Canadian company for his business.

The charges against Dhansook are that between April 30, 2005, and May 20, 2010, he gave false evidence at the San Fernando and Port of Spain Magistrates’ Courts against Khan, who is now the PNM chairman and Williams, who now works in Africa.

Dhansook is charged with committing a series of acts which had a tendency to pervert the course of justice when he gave false statements and false evidence in which he alleged he paid Khan and Williams as a reward for securing contracts for him with Terra Sais International of Canada.

Senior Magistrate Lucina Cardenas-Ragoonanan in January 2008 dismissed the charges against Williams after she ruled Dhansook’s evidence was “unbe­lie­vable, tenuous, and vague”.

Two years later, the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Roger Gaspard withdrew the charges against Khan.

Dhansook, will re-appear in court on July1 and 7 in the Rio Claro Magistrates’ Court, south of here and the Port of Spain Magistrates’ Court respectively.
