AG reminds Norton to provide ‘facts’ when accusing the Government of corruption

Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs Anil Nandlall on Tuesday during his television programme “Issues in the News” said Opposition Leader and leader of the PNCR Aubrey Norton must provide instances or explanations to the public when accusing the Government of being corrupt.

He was at the time referring to comments made by the Opposition at the PNCR weekly press conference.

“He accuses the Government of rampant and massive corruption and for not one moment does be stop and cite a single example of the corruption about which he speaks.”

The Attorney General said Norton should be more 'mature'.

“Mr Norton has to be a little mature in my respectful view, and must have a little greater respect for our collective intellect as a people when he decides to make these bold and unsubstantiated assertions especially when they are not grounded in facts and in reality."

Nandlall also blasted Norton for turning a blind eye to the corrupt transactions that were made under the previous APNU/AFC Government during the period 2015 to 2020.

The Attorney General reminded viewers of the US$18M signing bonus that was done under the previous Government which was facilitated without the public’s knowledge. Also, the sale of state assets to persons at a wholesale price.
