In late October, before a San Fernando gathering, Minister Stuart Young had announced that former Housing Minister Roodal Moonilal would soon be served legal papers to appear before the courts and answer questions linked to a civil suit.
Sources in knowledgeable circles are this evening saying that the count down is now on for the former Minister.
The Oropuche East MP has steadfastly denied all allegations against him and has even challenged Minister Young and Camille Robinson-Regis to provide evidence of charges against him.
Moonilal’s name has featured on the front page of a search warrant for TN Ramnauth, a contractor who in 2016 took the state enterprise EMBD to court for outstanding monies. The state is currently countering and seeking to regain monies from 5 contractors who it is claiming is part of a bid-rigging contractor cartel. The state’s case alleges that MP Moonilal was at the heart of the bid rigging and to support the allegations the state provided excerpts of forensically retrieved SMS messages.
