Just go now, Mr Young

T&T broke Rio Treaty
But in a response to Mondello's statement last evening, Young said his comments in the Upper House were "misconstrued. I never said that the Ambassador did not raise the visit of Venezuelan Vice-President Delcy Rodriguez nor did I say that the Ambassador did not raise the Rio Treaty," Young said.

AG: Public outcry needed for UNC to support bail bill
Al-Rawi said the Government's position was that anyone charged with possession of a gun and or ammunition will have to convince a court why they ought to be granted bail as opposed to an automatic denial of bail.

Asked about his chances of unseating the incumbent MP Dr Fuad Khan he replied: "It's in the hands of the Father. I'm just going to put my best foot forward. You go in it to win it, but at the same time how everything has been going so far and how I've been approaching it I think the sky's the limit. That would be such an amazing accomplishment not only for the PNM and in terms of shaping the outcome of the election but just a feel good story."
