PM receives report on OAS mishap

The Office of the Prime Minister has said that Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley has received a report into what led to this country objecting to Dominica's request to forego the OAS fees in light of its recovery from devastating hurricanes last year,

A statement by the Office of the Prime Minister says that upon his return to Trinidad from Tobago today, the prime minister received a full report of the details of the OAS mishap.

Prime Minister Rowley requested this report from the Minister of Foreign and CARICOM Affairs, Dennis Moses prior to his visit to Tobago over the Easter weekend.

Ambassador Anthony Phillips-Spencer represented Trinidad and Tobago at the OAS meeting where he objected to the waiving of the fees, recommending instead, deferred payment.

He has since said that he was just following orders.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has said that Trinidad and Tobago's view was misrepresented at the meeting.

The Government of Trinidad and Tobago has since apologised to Dominica.
