In the course of my Budget 2013 contribution in the Senate, delivered on Monday 23rd September, 2013, I raised the issue of the Attorney General’s distribution of schoolbags to children in Diego Martin. I essentially suggested that those people do not need ‘trinkets’ especially from persons who refuse to explain their tremendous and newly-found wealth; and persons who refer to them as “underprivileged.” I suggested that what the people really needed was fairness, equality of opportunity, equity and social justice!

In response, the Attorney General, who has admitted acquiring three properties valued at several million dollars in up-scale communities since he assumed office, chose to raise issues regarding the only home I own and in which I live.

This is the very house that Jack Warner, his former colleague, sought to link to an illegal acquisition. At that time, just over a year ago Jack claimed the house was valued at $7 million. The Attorney General in his Senate response this week in a most astonishing manner now seek to place a new value of $14million on my house.

Since then, certain elements of the media, allowing themselves to be used by the Attorney General to cast unsavory aspersions upon me and my family; and to hide from his own circumstances, have carried stories amplifying the Attorney General’s ‘valuation’ and irrelevant concerns about who I invited to my home;   and whether those persons were allowed in a non-existent swimming pool.

I wish to emphasise that there is absolutely no swimming pool at my residence.

Notwithstanding this simplicity, there is an undertone of allegations of corruption in all of this. There is purpose to their madness and wickedness.

In this regard, I have authorized my bank, the First Citizens Bank, Park Street, Port of Spain, to make available, to ANY authorized police officer, from Commissioner to the last-joined recruit; and/or ANY authorized official from the Integrity Commission, from Chairman to clerk, all my bank details and records regarding the obtaining, payment and balance of my mortgage facility.

This I am confident, will demonstrate a straight and clear path to my family’s ownership and acquisition of our house. The Eastern Credit Union can speak to the acquisition of the land in 1998. They too are authorized.

However, I call on the Attorney General to set the public record straight and retain the services of a valuator, in order to obtain a real value of my house, if indeed he is really so interested. This would correct the ‘value’ he foolishly put on it whilst on his legs on the floor of the Parliament.

I also call upon the Prime Minister and the Attorney General, as well as others in her Cabinet, to do like me and to show clear paths to their acquisition and maintenance of the properties they now own, whether acquired before or after assuming ministerial office.

I bought the land on which my house sits as an Opposition MP. The construction of the building, straddled my time in government and being out of Parliament and politics altogether, between 2004 and 2010. I am still developing my house.

I also call upon the Attorney General, the Prime Minister and others involved in the Email/Clause 34 investigation, to do like me and authorize Google or other respective internet service-providers, to make available to the Police and the Integrity Commission, all their internet records relevant to that investigation. A user can so authorize and I have a precedent which Google has accepted in the past; and which I am willing to make available to them all.

Mine, like many other ordinary citizens of this country, has been a story of struggle. I was, and continue to be heavily indebted in respect of this house and will continue to work hard and honestly, to meet my obligations in this regard.

It is, in my view very unfortunate, that the Attorney General and his media enthusiasts will use my house as a place to hide behind his inability to explain his tremendous wealth-acquisition within recent years.

From the Leader of the Opposition

As we commemorate the Thirty-Seventh Anniversary of Trinidad and Tobago attaining Republican status, it is incumbent upon us as citizens to reflect on the true meaning of being a Republic. When Trinidad and Tobago became independent in 1962, the Queen of England continued to be our Head of State to whom all citizens owed allegiance. However, on August 1st 1976, our nation gained Republican status and as such, we were able to have our own Head of State, the President. The day is commemorated annually on September 24 as this was the date in 1976 when the Parliament first met under the Republican Constitution.

According to the Webster Dictionary a Republic is “a state or nation in which the supreme power rests in the citizens entitled to vote (the electorate) and is exercised by representatives elected, directly or indirectly, by them, and responsible to them”. This, my fellow citizens, is the basis upon which our Republican Constitution was built.

I believe it is imperative that all citizens be mindful of the significance of this day in our nation’s development. It means that our allegiance is now owed to our nation, Trinidad and Tobago. We now have our President as the Commander in Chief of our Armed Forces and the repository of executive power. These powers are exercised within the provisions of the Constitution and usually with consultation and advice of the duly elected Prime Minister and Leader of the Opposition. Since it is you, the citizens, who elect these individuals directly and or indirectly, it is with you that the true power resides.

Even as we approach yet another election season, I urge you all to remember this; we are a Republic, supreme powers rest in the electorate, those who you elect to represent you are ultimately responsible to you. I urge you to not be fooled by those who pose as servants to become masters but be ever cognisant that as of September 24th 1976 the supreme powers of our nation rest with you.

On behalf of the People’s National Movement, I wish each and every citizen a safe and happy Republic Day.
Thank you.
Dr Keith Rowley
