UNC moves to block sale of Petrotrin

The Unit­ed Na­tion­al Con­gress (UNC) is seek­ing an in­junc­tion tem­porar­i­ly block­ing the sale of Petrotrin’s Pointe-a-Pierre re­fin­ery. 

The par­ty, through its for­mer sen­a­tor Wayne Sturge, filed the in­junc­tion ap­pli­ca­tion yes­ter­day as part of a con­sti­tu­tion­al mo­tion law­suit over the fail­ure of Fi­nance Min­is­ter Colm Im­bert to hold a Joint Se­lect Com­mit­tee (JSC) on En­er­gy Af­fairs for the past 19 months. 

Sturge guilty of contempt of court

Attorney-at-law and former Opposition Senator Wayne Sturge has been fined $5000 for contempt of court or face six months in prison.

He has one week within which to pay the fine.

The ruling was handed down by Justice Norton Jack.

The charges arose from a Facebook posting made on Sturge's Facebook page in relation to a murder trial before the court.

Sturge was one of the defence attorneys in the matter.

The court's sentence is also being referred to the Disciplinary Committee of the Law Association of Trinidad and Tobago.
