Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar last night declared victory following the Integrity Commission’s termination of its emailgate investigation.
She says the vindication is proof that Opposition Leader Dr Keith Rowley is unfit to lead the country.
In a letter dated yesterday, the Commission’s registrar Martin Farrell says the commission is satisfied that there is no or insufficient grounds for continuing the investigation.
Today marks exactly two years since Dr. Rowley dropped the emailgate bombshell in Parliament, while piloting a motion of no confidence in the Prime Minister.
Rowley had disclosed the contents of 31 alleged e-mails purporting to be exchanges between Persad-Bissessar, Attorney General Anand Ramlogan, former minister of local government Surujrattan Rambachan, and then-national security adviser to the Prime Minister Gary Griffith.
The e-mails alleged these high office holders were conspiring to harm a journalist, plant electronic spying devices in the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, offer the DPP a judgeship, and accept payment from an unnamed woman in exchange for the freedom of individuals involved in the Section 34 fiasco in September 2012.
