One month into office and the Attorney General is confirming what the PNM had suspected all along, that the People's Partnership Government spent close to $1 billion on legal fees in the past 5 years. Of that amount, the AG claims 11 lawyers benefitted the most with one collecting $58 million from the former administration. Details about the PP's hefty payout were disclosed during the Budget debate this morning but the Opposition says it's clear, the new government is embarking on a witch hunt. Ria Rambally reports.
