Prime Minister tweets letter on Emailgate messages

Monday, May 11, 2015

Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar today tweeted a letter from Jack Russo, attorney for the Computer Law Group, regarding the validity of controversial emails allegedly exchanged in the Emailgate controversy.

The letter, dated May 4, 2015, was released at mid-morning today.

The letter states, “I am pleased to confirm that Google, Inc. has provided the requested information for all emails exchanged between yourself ([email protected]) and former Attorney General Anand Ramlogan ([email protected] .tt) for the period September 1st 2012 to September 31st 2012. This of course, is the relevant-time frame in which certain offensive emails were alleged to have been exchanged between those two accounts, which gave rise to allegations of a criminal conspiracy.”

Russo’s letter went on to state that the emails for that period were sent to attorneys from the Integrity Commission and stated that it was, “therefore a matter for the Integrity Commission to vindicate you by making the appropriate announcement to confirm these facts.”

The letter concludes by stating that the information in the emails does not match the emails read in parliament by Dr Keith Rowley in May 2013.

“I am pleased to advise that there has been no match for any of the emails contained in the document produced by the leader of the Opposition, Dr Keith Rowley, which prompted the Integrity Commission’s Investigation. For avoidance of doubt, none of the offending emails in that document were found to have been sent from or received by [email protected] and [email protected]," the letter said.
