King’s Counsel Vincent Nelson wants his civil claim against the Attorney General for an alleged breach of an indemnity agreement with the Government unsealed.

On Tuesday, Nelson’s attorney Shankar Bidaisee wrote to one of the State’s attorneys, Tenille Ramkissoon, saying he intends to apply for an order to unseal the claim so its contents can be made public.

The letter, a copy of which was sent to Newsday, sets out shocking and explosive claims now being made by Nelson, including references to the Office of the President and the Mercy Committee.

On Monday, Director of Public Prosecutions Roger Gaspard, SC, announced the State was dropping the charges against former attorney general Anand Ramlogan, SC, and ex-UNC senator Gerald Ramdeen.

He said Nelson was not willing to give evidence in that matter, until his claim for breach of the alleged indemnity agreement came to an end.

Bidaisee wrote, “Our client has since taken note of the reported comments of the DPP and, having taken advice, intends to apply for an order to unseal the matter so that the contents thereof can be made available to the public.”
