Works Minister v HRM in court again today

Officials of the Works and Transport Ministry and members of the Highway Reroute Movement (HRM) returned to the San Fernando Supreme Court, today, to make their legal submissions before the judge.

Works and Transport Minister Rohan Sinanan was cross examined yesterday by HRM leader Dr Wayne Kublalsingh, who is representing himself in a judicial review claim he brought against the minister.

Kublalsingh: “Stop work on the Fyzabad to Mon Desir segment, now!”

Works are going apace on the Fyzabad to Mon Desir segment of the Sir Solomon Hochoy Highway Extension Project, but head of the Highway Reroute Movement (HRM)—Dr Wayne Kublalsingh—is calling on the Prime Minister to stop the project now.

During a press conference on Friday, Kublalsingh said acquisition of all properties has not been completed and all residents have not been compensated.

"The Government is breaking the law in Debe to Mon Desir. It is acting with malfeasance," Kublalsingh said.
