Roget delivers guilty verdict on Kamla

And her People’s Partnership Cabinet was released into the wilderness at Labour Day celebrations in Fyzabad.

The verdict was delivered by Joint Trade Union Movement (JTUM) leader and Oilfields Workers’ Trade Union (OWTU) presi­dent general Ancel Roget as he addressed thousands of workers at Charlie King Junction.

The trade unions, followed by People’s National Movement (PNM) members, marched from Avocat Junction to Charlie King Junction where JTUM delivered a performance appraisal of Persad- Bissessar.

Roget said, “Madam Prime Minister, you have been found guilty in the court of public opinion today, at Charlie King Junction, Fyzabad, in the year of our Lord, 2015. Your sentencing is deferred until September 7, 2015, when the country will determine the term you will serve in the political wilderness.”

The verdict followed a list of questions asked to a mannequin in the likeness of Persad-Bissessar.

The questions included, “Is the Prime Minister guilty of deception and fooling the people? Is the Prime Minister guilty of embarrassing the country; and is the Prime Minister smoking marijuana?”

To each question, the workers replied “Yes”.

Richardson must go

Roget also called for the imme­diate removal of former deputy com­missioner of police Mervyn Rich­ardson as strategic co-ordinator of the National Operations Centre (NOC).

He said in light of allegations made by former national security minister Jack Warner that he and Richardson were involved in the cover-up of a marijuana find at Persad-Bissessar’s private residence, Richardson should be removed.

And he even posed a list of questions to Richardson, asking whether he was aware of the alle­ged marijuana find at Persad-Bissessar’s home, along SS Erin Road, Phillipine, two years ago.

Roget said: “And if he has knowledge of this, he must tell the public why he chose to report it to the then minister of national security, a politician, instead of his immediate boss, the acting Commissioner of Police. The Police Service is supposed to be totally indepen­dent of the Government.”

Roget said with the serious alle­gation hanging over the head of the Prime Minister, she, too, should resign as head of the National Security Council.

“Because if illegal drugs were found at the residence of myself, or Ramesh Lawrence Maharaj or David Abdulah or Dr Keith Rowley or you, what would have been the police response?” he asked.

No forgiveness

He said JTUM would not forget or forgive Persad-Bissessar, Labour Minister Errol McLeod or any member of the Government. “Because anyone who tries to destroy the OWTU will end up destroying themselves,” he declared.

Roget said McLeod, a former trade union leader, had failed the working class. And he even posed some questions to McLeod. Among the questions was whether McLeod was aware of the Government minister accused of “pulling a gun on his spouse”.

Roget outlined the failures of the People’s Partnership and called on workers to remove the coalition Government on September 7.

And as he ended the celebrations, Roget released black, helium-filled balloons with photographs of all members of the People’s Partnership Government.
