AG’s curious logic… and section 34

Attorney General Anand Ramlogan, as he suggested during the section 34 debacle, is very particular about what responsibilities he attaches to his post. And facts and truthfulness appear not to be part of his job description.

After attorney Reginald Armour SC complained that the AG inflated his legal fees from Central Bank by more than 400 percent, Ramlogan stood his ground and suggested that the onus was on Armour to prove his innocence and not on to the State to substantiate its accusation.

Ramlogan told the Trinidad Express that he found Armour’s denial “curious” and suggested that the attorneys should provide the figures they received to clear the air.

Armour and company, it follows, are presumed guilty unless they can prove their innocence.

On that note, Mr AG SC, can we revisit section 34 again please?
