Persad-Bissessar: Why no JSC on FATCA as promised?

Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar says the Government has acted in bad faith by adjourning Parliament without following through with the stated intent of establishing a Joint Select Committee to address the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA).

Persad-Bissessar has issued a statement on her position on the issues related to FATCA.
