On the first day of the reopening of Parliament at the Red House, members of the Progressive Empowerment Party (PEP) gathered outside the Red House to deliver a letter to the Prime Minister.
In the letter, the political party requested an enquiry into the activities of UDECOTT and an audit of the terms of the contracts awarded to the Corporation for the renovation of the President’s House, the President’s Cottage, the Red House and White Hall.
Dressed in orange the members started by singing the National Anthem. They also conducted their walk gagged and silent.
The Urban Development Corporation of Trinidad and Tobago (UDeCOTT) has been awarded the contract to provide facilities management services at the Maracas Beach Facility.
Princes Town MP, Barry Padarath is accusing Udecott for breaching the freedom of information act.
A freedom of information application was filed inquiring about the contractors awarded work on the Brian Lara Stadium during the period September 8th, 2015 to August 2016 and the values of the contracts and the process by which they were awarded.
Padarath says several months have elapsed and still no response from Udecott.
