Imbert: No unlawful disclosure of people's private banking info will be done by Govt
Finance Minister Colm Imbert in Parliament yesterday refused to answer an Opposition UNC query which had called for him to provide a list of the ten largest recipients of foreign exchange for the period October 1st, 2021 to September 30th, 2022.
Imbert: Scanning more at ports can slow trade
It was also revealed that there were no scanners working at the port, meaning all inspections were being done manually. The police claim that the majority of illegal guns, particularly assault rifles, are imported through legitimate ports and want closer scrutiny of shipping containers.
Deputy comptroller Yasmin Harris said four scanners are functioning at transit sheds at Piarco. Tens of thousands of guns, however, have been seized with the Strategic Security Agency reporting 8,154 (valued at $100 million) recovered in 2017, 9,389 ($119 million) in 2019 and 11,043 ($144 million) last year.
Imbert responds: T&T scans five times more containers than USA

Poor grades for Hinds, flood help
"This administration has been in office for seven years. Hinds has been part of the administration, part of Cabinet. It is a collective decision-making process and the responsibility is collective. Crime is not only the responsibility of the Ministry of National Security. There are multiple ministries that play a significant part in dealing and treating with crime. One cannot separate policy formation from implementation. Mr Hinds has found himself in this position but it also represents a failure on the part of policies of the government," he said.
PM denies 'ghosting' flood victims: 'I'm leading relief efforts'
THE Prime Minister has rejected opposition complaints of him not visiting flood-hit areas by saying he was running the entire country 24/7, unlike others playing politics in small boats at flood scenes.
Dr Rowley scoffed that he would leave "flood politics" to others. He explained his position in a reply on Saturday to queries by Newsday in response to statements by Couva South MP Rudy Indarsingh in Parliament on Friday. Indarsingh accused Rowley of having ghosted the population during a debate as the Opposition chided the Government's response to flood victims over the past week.

Ministry to construct bypass to connect Manzanilla-Mayaro Road
"We had flooding over ten kilometres of this road and the entire road is 26 kilometres. Over that ten kilometres, we have had 16 breaches. What we are doing is preparing designs and contract documents".
Do they hear themselves?
The problem, however, for this Government is that it is aggressive and snarling towards us with very little provocation other than fully justified complaints about violent crime, catastrophic flooding and the huge disparity between the quality of life of average citizens and the luxury vehicle and tuxedo lifestyle of our rulers.
