PPP web[www.inewsguyana.com] – General Secretary of the People’s Progressive Party (PPP), Clement Rohee has refused to disclose whether he was present at the Cabinet meeting that granted Attorney General and Legal Affairs Minister, Anil Nandlall $6 million for medical treatment.

In the infamous recording that went viral between Nandlall and Senior Kaieteur News Journalist, Leonard Gildarie, the Attorney General said that he borrowed the money from the government and paid it back before the Kaieteur News found out.

When asked if he was present at that Cabinet meeting, Rohee told reporters “I will not go there.”

“The best person to answer that is the Cabinet Secretary [Dr Roger Luncheon]. It is a government matter. He is the full crown; he is the inventory of all decisions made at Cabinet.”

Nandlall, in his public statement on the money stated, “This has been unfortunately interpreted to implicate me in some form of financial impropriety. I wish to set the record straight on that issue. The reference relates to the reimbursement I received for monies I expended on medical treatment. This reimbursement was approved by Cabinet in a written Cabinet decision dated 20 June 2013. This is, and historically has been, an entitlement of every member of Cabinet long before my appointment.”

Meanwhile, Rohee also revealed that no decision was taken to have Nandlall appear before the Party’s disciplinary committee.

“I have had a private talk with Mr Nandlall, he is a central member of the Committee and as the General Secretary, I’ve had a talk with him,” Rohee said.

However, he refused to reveal the details of the ‘talk.’
