Trinidad PM Dr Keith Rowley denies allegations of financial impropriety and calls them “spurious and wholly untrue”
Trinidad & Tobago Prime Minister, Dr Keith Rowley, has denied allegations that he has a bank account in Florida, through which he benefitted financially from a massive fake oil fraud at the state-owned Petrotrin refinery, as “spurious and wholly untrue”.
Opposition member of parliament, Dr Roodal Moonilal, made the accusations during Tuesday’s Budget debate, when he read from documents he said showed that Rowley had benefited from financial transactions conducted through a US account with Vidya Deokiesingh.
In a personal explanation in the House of Representatives on Tuesday, Rowley said there is absolutely no truth to what Moonilal had imputed, and added that “It is deserving of being brought before the Privileges Committee”.
