How fast they want you to forget!!






Quote :

Patrick Manning, said he has maintained his silence to protect Rowley. Declaring his support and respect for Rowley, Manning told supporters at the Pleasantville Community Centre on Thursday, “One of the main reasons that I maintained silence was to ensure that nothing I do or say destabilises our new political leader.”

From The UFF REPORT:

(iiiB) By further enhancement: in respect to the MLA Tower:

(a) The award to Sunway Caribbean Ltd breached UDeCOTT's tender rules in the following respects.

(b) In 2004 when CH Construction applied to UDeCOTT for prequalification, shortly before invitations to tender, CH Construction was without any assets

(c) On 10 November 2004 when it received an invitation from UDeCOTT to tender for the Ministry of Legal Affairs Tower CH Construction had no VAT Certificate, no NIB Certificate and no PAVE File Number, each of which was required. The lack of a VAT Certificate in particular had, in other cases, caused the rejection of tenders'•.

(d) In awarding the contract UDeCOTT wrongly took into account the financial strength of Sunway Malaysia and ignored the fact that CH Construction was not pre-qualified'

(e) CH Construction could not have satisfied the pre-qualification criteria set by UDeCOTT and therefore could not have been in a position to properly obtain a contract".

(f) UDeCOTT failed to obtain a parent company guarantee from Sunway
Malaysia, notwithstanding that CH Construction had no assets'•.

(g) The award of the MLA Tower contract to Sunway Caribbean Ltd demonstrated that Mr. Calder Hart had an ongoing relationship with CH Construction which had not been revealed to the UDeCOTT Board by reason of the following:

(i) The letter dated 25 October 2004 from CH Construction to
UDeCOTT which lists Mr. Hart's fax number".

(ii) Mr. Hart's explanation that this was due to an error", was implausible because the tender was submitted 3 months after first letter was sent.

(iii) It is unlikely that such an error could have gone unnoticed for 3 months; faxes to CH Construction would have been arriving at Mr. Hart's home.

(iv) No evidence has been given to suggest that Mr. Hart ever wrote to CH Construction to ask for an explanation.

(v) CH Construction did fax its acceptance of UDeCOTT's offer from Mr. Hart's home fax.

(h) The Tender Evaluation Report for MLA Tower noted that the tender of CH Construction was some $67 million higher than the lowest tender, from HKL, and $22 million higher than that of Johnston International Ltd. There were no proper reasons not to award the contract to either of these companies. The decision to award the contract to CH Construction was motivated by Mr. Calder Hart's relationship with that company.

(i) It was clear, when on 22 June 2005 UDeCOTT reissued their letter of award to Sunway Construction Caribbean Limited, that this company was a subsidiary company with no assets or track record whose ability to perform the contract was wholly dependent on support from the parent company. Despite this, the UDeCOTT Board neglected their own resolution of November 2004 for a parent company guarantee. By so doing the UDeCOTT Board knowingly exposed the public purse to a grave risk of non-performance with no available recourse.

Diego West rallies behind Rowley
By CLINT CHAN TACK Friday, May 2 2008

DR KEITH ROWLEY is ready to resign as Diego Martin West MP and retire from public life if any inquiry into the Urban Development Corporation of Trinidad and Tobago’s (Udecott) operations proves his concerns about the company to be false.

'Self-serving hypocrite'

By Ria Taitt Political Editor

Diego Martin West MP Dr Keith Rowley attempted to sell Urban Development Corporation of Trinidad and Tobago (UDeCOTT) chairman Calder Hart a plot of his family property in Tobago. And on two separate occasions "somewhere between 2003 and 2004", Rowley and the UDeCOTT chairman drove around the sister isle in the same car.

So stated Minister of Public Utilities Mustapha Abdul-Hamid yesterday, as he delivered a blistering attack on the Tobago-born Rowley during debate on the Validation and Immunity Bill.

"I am advised that somewhere between 2003 and 2004, the same Calder Hart, about whom comments were made as being responsible for bid-rigging, that the Member for Diego Martin West on two occasions escorted Mr Calder Hart to view property in Tobago which was the member for Tobago West's family business...once as Minister for Planning and Development and once as Minister for Housing,...with a view to Mr Calder Hart purchasing a plot of land in that property," Abdul-Hamid said.

Noting that Rowley had stated on Monday that he went to see Prime Minister Patrick Manning in August 2003 about bid-rigging at UDeCOTT and about Hart's involvement, Abdul-Hamid asked: "Mr Speaker, where was the moral high ground on which the member for Diego Martin West is now perched? Where was all the righteousness that I heard on Monday. I am sorry but it seems to me that the words of the member for Diego Martin West are the words of a self-serving hypocrite."

This provoked desk-thumping.

Stating that he was defending his Government against a "vicious, treacherous and treasonous attack", Abdul-Hamid said Rowley spent 52 months in the Government after his alleged complaint to Manning about bid-rigging.

"There were five months in 2003, 2004 came and pass, 2005 came and pass, 2006 came and pass, 2007 came and pass. That is 52 months... Not a word to the public about bid-rigging... If you were so upset...so offended as you proclaim to be, how come for five years you cannot find an opportunity to make even the smallest comment to the media... about bid-rigging at UDeCOTT?

"For those five years, wasn't the bid-rigging smelling to high heavens? Were the wrong-doers not prospering? How many times worse than Piarco was UDeCOTT (during that period)? Five times, four times? Where was the voice of the member for Diego Martin West between 2003 and 2007?"

Abdul-Hamid said furthermore, there was an election in 2007 and Rowley had an opportunity to exit. "Why did you come to fight an election under the leadership of somebody who is supporting bad behaviour? More than that, he fought for that right to contest, alleging that somebody was conspiring to keep him out. Was it (the Manning administration) not smelling then? (Again) more than that, he accepted a ministerial position (becoming Minister of Trade in the new administration)," he said.

"All that time, not a word of bid-rigging," he added, asking where was Rowley's voice.
Abdul-Hamid said Rowley had now deployed opposition strategy in partnership with Ramesh Lawrence Maharaj and Jack Warner. Saying that Maharaj had a history of bringing Governments down, Abdul-Hamid said to desk-thumping: "So when I see the member for Tabaquite in partnership with the member for Diego Martin West, I have to get concerned."

He referred to PNM MPs Vincent Lasse and Rupert Griffith, who crossed the floor, attending a General Council meeting and swearing allegiance, only to join the UNC Government days after. He said he had no confidence that Rowley believed what he was saying, but that Rowley was now on a political campaign.

Abdul-Hamid said there were 25 MPs and not one of them will share the view held by Rowley that this Government was supporting corruption.

"Not one shares the view that the Prime Minister is out of order. And none shares the view that the country is going to hell in a hand basket."

To desk-thumping support, he said he wanted to advise the country that the Government stands firm against corruption.

Mustapha said all of those in the Opposition, "including the member for Diego Martin West", want Government to abandon the process of the Commission of Enquiry and engage in a "hang them in the square now" lynching.

"And the reason they are taking that view is that they have all hooked and attached their political fortunes to the collapse of UDeCOTT. And so their political fortunes are at risk. They would not like the commission to complete its work. What they would like... is for the Government to conspire with them to lynch UDeCOTT in the absence of due process," he said.

Abdul-Hamid recalled that Rowley said that if UDeCOTT was proven to be right he would resign his seat. "So he cannot take the chance that the commission would send a report that UDeCOTT might be without blame. Because his political career is on the line, by his own words," the Minister said.

He assured the country that "our Prime Minister is fit, able and competent to lead" and that the country "is indeed in good hands". He urged Rowley to "manage" his political ego.

"Sometimes you have a situation where there is a house and there is a throne and they cannot get to sit on the throne. And they would burn down the house," he said.
