Rowley Parliament

Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley has announced that at least one part of the Freedom of Information Act will remain untouched.

Over the last week, the Act which originally allowed a member of the public who request information through the FOIA on public offices to expect a response in one month, was initially amended to 90 days.

Then, due to public pressure, Attorney General, Faris Al Rawi announced that the time would be adjusted to 45 days.

This afternoon, during a Sitting of the House, the Prime Minister announced that the 30 day limit will stand as it is not the priority of the amendments being made.


Six months after then government MP Charrandas Persad voted against the David Granger administration in Guyana's National Assembly in a vote of no confidence, the Caribbean Court of Justice ruled the motion was valid.

As Trinidad and Tobago look for their first points of the CONCACAF Gold Cup, their Caribbean neighbours Jamaica got off to a winning start on Monday.
