Fixin’ T&T: PM continues attack on independent institutions

Fixin’ T&T categorically condemns the attack on the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) by Prime Minister (PM) Kamla Persad-Bissessar and Attorney General (AG) Garvin Nicholas.

This naked attempt to intimidate deputy DPP Joan Honore-Paul is reminiscent of those directed towards:

·         Mr David West – Director of the Police Complaints Authority

·         Mr Ken Gordon – Former Chairman of the Integrity Commission

·         Mr James Philbert – Former Acting Commissioner of Police

·         Ms Asha Javeed, Ms Denyse Renne and Ms Anika Gumbs – Investigative Journalists

We maintain that the People’s Partnership Administration’s demonstrated contempt for our Constitution, Parliament, Independent Institutions and due process is dangerous.

The ‘No Bail for Guns Bill’ was already passed in the face of strong objection from the Law Association. The draconian Cybercrime Bill was reintroduced and Legal Affairs Minister Prakash Ramadhar has stated the controversial ‘Run-off’ will become law before the next general elections.

The many and major issues of corruption, the downgrade by Moody’s and fact that the integrity of our Minister of Finance is in question are now second to the dire need to protect our very democracy.

We implore all and sundry to join us at 12 noon on Friday 22 May, 2015 outside our Parliament to insist on the immediate announcement of a date for general elections. Our Trinidad and Tobago is in urgent need of peaceful and lawful intervention by The People.

  2. We fixing T&T with Rowley.- FixingT&T .

  3. Fixin T&T arm of the PNM? Funded by ???

  4. smh some people are so delusional, they believe once they write something and it is immortalised online (somehow) they think that turns it from a lie to the truth…to those people I would say, stop wasting your time, no one is believing the lie but yourself. You shame your name and accomplish nothing more.
    Kudos to Wired868 for continuing to bring us truth and humour, because we have to laugh sometimes, otherwise we would just cry every day…. (smh, if only I cared enough to change my name!)

  5. This page has completely lost credibility now. It used so called humour but has been given the virtual slap in the face by Google and the Integrity Commission.
    Yes the tv lawyers said it is independent but did you notice they stopped there and went no further? Why? Read some law and stop with the shallow provocative statements which misrepresent info

    • Find just one paragraph from a single Wired868 story that has lost credibility from any information off the IC and Google… And I will personally apologise to you.

      • you are kidding right ?
        you have tons of apologizing to do then !

        This website is incredibly unfair and biased ! It has never been balanced, and It is obvious that the contributors are of the “PNM till they dead” mentality …

    • Media of any form that speaks against the government, or in favor of democracy, Independence of public institutions and fairness always loose credibility

    • This page has lost credibility, but not the PPG right? Wow…I am still amazed at how biased some ppl can still be, even after everything that has happened over the last five yrs…

    • what exactly has happened over the last five years? The PPG had to pump $20 billion into the Clico mess, had to deal with the $3 billion GTL mess, the $1 billion Tarouba stadium mess just to name a few….while doin all this the country has a new highway (that was promised by the PNM but never delivered), a hospital, health centers, various tertiary leaning facilities under construction just to name a few….

    • What has happened over the last five years??? Sigh… Won’t bother to go into it, I realise that would be a waste of time,you will never see anything but what you want to see. Still unbelievable…smh.

    • Lol tangible things that could be seen are blind to those with selective sight. They are focused on their agenda and refuse to acknowledge any good that was done.

  6. Clowns clowns all u believe parliament belongs to all u just a matter of time we fedup fedup gooooo

  7. This has long since passed being about any one political party. It’s not about the PPP vs PNM anymore, it’s about making liars, thieves, corruption makers accountable for their actions. No one is above the law!

  8. Yet the President is still silent……..

  9. Nothing new apparently we just have to get accustom to the leaders now as they come one after the other….

  10. They want the party to be the state!

  11. well no one must challenged them

  12. Father God give them a chance to repent and turn from their wickedness before you bun dem with brimstone, fire and sulfur.

  13. May these two charlatans burn in hell!
