“It’s been more than 48 hours since criminal charges have been officially laid against [UNC Senator Gerald Ramdeen]. Mr Ramdeen is an unelected member of our Parliament whose removal is long overdue…”
Fixin T&T calls on Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar to remove Senator Gerald Ramdeen, after he was charged for corruption and released on TT$1.2 million bail:
Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar must immediately advise the President to revoke the appointment of UNC Senator Gerald Ramdeen. It’s been more than 48 hours since criminal charges have been officially laid against him.
Mr Ramdeen is an unelected member of our Parliament whose removal is long overdue. Mr Ramdeen has been the subject of at least one criminal investigation for quite some time. Many other ‘clouds’ hang over him in his professional capacity.
Mrs Persad-Bissessar’s suggestion that the arrests and charging of Messrs Ramlogan and Ramdeen is politically motivated is as reckless as it is irresponsible. FIXIN’ T&T will not sit idly by and allow yet another arbitrary attack on our independent institutions; a dangerous ploy used by self serving politicians on both sides of the isle.
The Opposition Leader would be well served to recall that Government Ministers serving under PNM and UNC Administrations were arrested and charged in the past. Mrs Persad-Bissessar must do the right thing and remove Gerald Ramdeen from our Parliament immediately!
