Opposition MP

Dr Moonilal debunks claims MPs aligned with criminals

One Opposition MP is again refuting claims by National Security Minister Stuart Young that MPs were aligned with members of the criminal underworld.

Speaking on CNC3's The Morning Brew earlier today, Minister Young again alleged there were Members of Parliament engaging with criminals.

He also confirmed that the circumstances of some of the crooked relationships were being investigated by the police.

But Oropouche East MP, Dr Roodal Moonilal, again distanced UNC members from the accusations being made by the national security minister.

MOONILAL: "What's the real story with CEPEP and URP wage increases?"

Opposition Member of Parliament, Dr Roodal Moonilal, is calling on the Finance Minister to clarify the wage increase for both CEPEP and URP workers.

During the Finance Minister’s 2020 Budget Presentation last Monday, Government explained that these workers' wage increase takes into account the new cap for the Minimum Wage.

However, Dr Moonilal says this explanation has raised more questions than provided answers.
