PM blames Snoop for travel assistant

PM Kamla Persad-Bissessar’s use of her sister Vidwatie Newton as a travel assistant was backed by an anonymous minister who claimed a staff member—who cannot defend himself due to a confidentiality clause—snooped through the PM’s purse and cellphone on a prior trip.

Another source said the money spent on Newton in India, which was over $230,000, was for expenses rather than a per diem. Wired868 can only assume that ex-Planning Minister Mary King—sacked for giving her family’s company a $100,000 contract to build a website—is taking notes.
