PLYMOUTH – HOUSING Minister Edmund Dillon says he feels “pain” for his cabinet colleague Marlene McDonald who has been in police custody since Thursday.
He was speaking to the media on Saturday at the official opening of Adventure Housing Development Community Park, Plymouth, Tobago.
When questioned about the arrest of McDonald and her common law husband Michael Carew, Dillion said, “I have emotions, yes, definitely. Minister Mc Donald is my Cabinet colleague and I feel the pain for her,”
Dillon declined further comment. Chief Secretary of the Tobago House of Assembly Kelvin Charles who was also at the ceremony said people as innocent until proven guilty.
McDonald and Carew were arrested on allegations of corruption and are being questioned by police at the Professional Standards Bureau, Port of Spain.
Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley has said if the police investigation into Mc Donald and Carew unearths anything untoward, he will deal with it accordingly.
