Former Minister of National Security Jack Warner has released a new audio recording purported to be of an ex-National Security Minister discussing a marijuana find.

It comes days after news broke of an allegation from Warner that a quantity of marijuana was discovered outside the private residence of Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar in Phillipine. 

The recording was released this afternoon at a news conference held by Warner at the Centre of Excellence, Macoya.

Warner has claimed that he, Housing Minister Roodal Moonilal, ex-National Security Minister Gary Griffith and former DCP Mervyn Richardson participated in 2013 in a cover-up of the alleged discovery of four ounces of marijuana outside a window on the Prime Minister’s property.

A number of Government and Police officials—including Roodal Moonilal, Errol Mc Leod and Surujrattan Rambachan—have distanced themselves from the allegations.

Former Minister of National Security Gary Griffith also denied Warner's claim.
