A call from the Movement for Social Justice (MSJ) to remove Central Bank Governor Jwala Rambaran.
MSJ leader David Abdullah made the statement during the MSJ’s special congress in Couva at the weekend.
Abdullah said the country will find out sooner or later whether the People’s National Movement (PNM) will be able to change its culture and deliver on its promise of new governance.
The first step toward that, Abdullah said, was to remove Central Bank Governor Jwala Ramabaran. The MSJ leader called for a reversal of the decision of what he described as the “sell out of our patrimony” such as the assets of CLICO like Republic Bank and one of the methanol companies.
Abdullah also called for monies to be allocated to the Attorney General’s office in order to hire a battery of experts- including foreign forensic investigators if necessary, he said, and lawyers to thoroughly investigate allegations of corruption under the United National Congress.
Abdullah said if no evidence is found to prosecute, then those accused would have their name cleared.
He said the MSJ will be looking forward to contesting the upcoming local government election.
