According to Attorney Anthony Astaphan, Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit could soon make a decision on what form of action he will take, as regards allegations that he is connected to companies in the offshore financial sector.
The allegations stem from an article being circulated on the internet titled “From rags to riches: in search of Roosevelt Skerrit’s millions.”
According to Astaphan, the article alleges that operators of offshore companies in the United Kingdom have close connections to the Prime Minister and may be the source of what has been rumoured to be significant wealth quietly amassed over the years.
Astaphan has hinted that the Mr Skerrit could soon take legal action against the persons behind the publication of the article.
Prime Minister Skerrit is accusing the Opposition United Workers Party of being the masterminds behind the article.
Opposition leader Lennox Linton has categorically denied the accusation.
