Acting Attorney General Stuart Young yesterday said Government has not played any role in any investigation by the police.
In a release, he rejected allegations made over the weekend by the UNC about government members being involved in such investigations into certain matters.
Young maintained that Oropouche East MP Dr Roodal Moonilal, “will soon be served with civil proceedings for the alleged part that he played in a conspiracy to award contracts and facilitate payments to five contractors engaged in cartel-like behaviour at the Estate Management and Business Development Company (EMBD).”
At a news conference on October 16, Young announced legal action against the five contractors. He said the matter involved alleged bid-rigging and cartel-like behaviour in the award of ten contracts at the EMBD worth $200 million.
He said then that legal action would be taken against Moonilal for breach of his fiduciary duties to act honestly and in good faith. Moonilal has denied the claims and described the matter as a vendetta against him.
