P.U.P. Contemplating Judicial Review if Joshua Perdomo’s Loan is Written-Off

Kareem Musa

Musa reiterated what Briceño has said to the PM, and that is that, if the loan is written off without the Senate’s approval, the Opposition will launch a legal challenge in the form of judicial review.

“I want to say this Hipolito that in my opinion this matter has been shut down by the Senate and this matter has not been written off. If the Prime Minister and this government wants to be bold headed and try to say that is has been written off successfully without the Senate’s approval then I say we have to challenge it by judicial review. So there are two legal positions here. The Opposition standpoint is that is has been shutdown but if the Government wants to be bullheaded in its way as it normally is like Mr. Ram it, always wants to ram things down then we will challenge this in a court of law.  You see what the AG fails to realize is that the writing off of bonds is a very, very rare practice.”

“Isn’t it normal?”

 

Kareem Musa

“It is not normal. I don’t know where the attorney general gets that from. When we are at the committee meeting and when it was being questioned, when we questioning the Financial Secretary he said that he cannot even recall when the last one was. A write off of a bond, he cannot recall and so if we have a financial secretary who has been there since the days of the PUP and now the UDP cannot even recall a write off of a bond for somebody then it is very rare Hipolito and so it is not that we are going after Joshua Perdomo we are saying that whenever you write off and give that nonsensical excuses about he cannot be found and another excuse that it is statute barred you are clearly grabbing at straws in order to protect a special member of the United Democratic Party.”
