Padarath accuses Hinds of land encroachment

Laventille West MP Fitzgerald Hinds yesterday threatened to take Opposition MP Barry Padarath to the Privileges Committee for accusing him of encroaching on his neighbour’s land.

The incident took place while Padarath, who is MP for Princes Town, was delivering his contribution on the Land Adjudication Bill in Parliament.

Responding to Hinds’ contribution, Padarath said Hinds gave “us a typical song and dance. And it appears that the Honourable Member has also fallen victim to his own stubbornness.”
