Privy Council will decide for MPs
Ramlogan: No out-of-court settlement ever made
Monday, June 18th 2007
There was never any question of an out-of-court settlement for those 18 Members of Parliament who were not paid their salaries when there was no functioning Parliament in 2002, an attorney representing the MPs has said.
Attorney Anand Ramlogan told the Express at the weekend that the MPs were still interested in pursuing their lawsuit claiming the unpaid salaries and allowances, and when the matter was argued before the Privy Council last month, there was never any question of the case being settled.
Ramlogan said it was therefore wrong for anyone to say that the lawsuit could be dropped, as judgment had already been reserved.
His statements followed a denial from Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar - herself one of the 18 MPs - that there was never any deal between the UNC and the PNM to agree to the Police Service Reform Bills in exchange for the year's worth of salaries and allowances.
She made the declaration in the House of Representatives last Friday, even as Ken Valley, Leader of Government Business, tabled a Bill which provided for the payment of the salaries to the 18 MPs.
