Investigators may have to extradite former executive chairman of the Urban Development Corporation of T&T (Udecott) John Calder Hart, as he has moved to block criminal charges by severing all ties from this jurisdiction. The shocking new twist comes on the heels of the whopping $3,400,000 million selling price tag on Hart’s sprawling mansion at #No 6 De Lima Road, Second Avenue, Cascade. A deed dated May 20, prepared by attorney Mark Laquis of Pollonais, Blanc, de la Bastide & Jacelon of Pembroke Street, Port-of-Spain was delivered anonymously to the Trinidad Guardian Head Office on Friday evening, in an unmarked envelope.

The document stated, that Hart, who is listed as a company director and his wife Sherrine have agreed to sell the mansion at the price of $3.4million. The shocking development is not sitting well with Attorney General Anand Ramlogan who told the Sunday Guardian he would be urgently meeting with the Director of Public Prosecutions Roger Gaspard for directions on how to proceed on the matter.

  • The New PP Gov’t needs to get every cent back from these alleged thieves. The common thieves gets severe and swift justice. They should also administer the same treatment to these fellas.

  • All assets must be seized immediately, until investigation are completed. We want we money back.

  • King: UDeCOTT books being audited
    THE accounts of the controversial Urban Development Company of Trinidad and Tobago (UDeCOTT) are being reviewed, says Planning, Economic, Social Restructuring and Gender Affairs Minister Mary King.

  • Didn’t the homeless person who stole the newsday newspaper from the prime minister office yard get four months hard labour.

  • The DPP and Attorney General need to take Calder Hart to task and start criminal proceedings to recoup the money that Hart and his wife have stolen, once the forensic audit has revealed how much they stole. The proceeds of sale of that $3.4 million mansion would be a start towards the money he owes Trinidad & T’go. He would need to be extradited and he may run to Pananama also!
