THE owner of MovieTowne Derek Chin was allowed to return to Trinidad only if he picked up cancer patient Krissa Bissoon who was stranded in the Bahamas.
This was revealed by Dr Keith Rowley at a media conference at the Diplomatic Centre on Saturday.
Chin and Bissoon are in quarantine at the Cascadia Hotel after being given permission by National Security Minister Stuart Young to return home while Trinidad and Tobago borders are closed in an effort to fight the Covid-19 Pandemic.
Rowley noted that Chin and the National Security Minister were being attacked over the issue.
“That was agreed to and that is what happened. We thank Mr Chin for doing that and we wish the lady the best.There is no need to attack Mr Chin.”
Reports indicated that Chin picked up Bissoon on a private plane after his lawyers negotiated for his return.
