T&T PM reviewing Sasha contract

(Trinidad Express) Prime Minister Kamla Persad Bissessar said yesterday she had asked her Permanent Secretary to look into the contract of Sasha Mohammed, her adviser on public engagement.

“We would deal with that in due course,” Persad-Bissessar added in her first statement on the issue. Asked what she meant by “deal with it”, the Prime Minister replied: “My PS would advise me”.

She was speaking to reporters following the swearing-in ceremony for new government ministers, at Knowsley Building, Queen’s Park West, Port of Spain.

Mohammed was warned by the police earlier this month after their probe uncovered that threatening e-mails sent to Express editor-in-chief Omatie Lyder and reporter Anna Ramdass in the name of “Janice Thomas” originated from the computer at Mohammed’s San Juan home.

Since then, there have been calls for her removal—including from the Media Association of Trinidad and Tobago, Opposition Leader Dr Keith Rowley and the Movement for Social Justice.
