THE Opposition has again filed a motion of no-confidence in Attorney General Reginald Armour, SC.

They are also calling for separate investigations to be conducted by the Law Association of Trinidad and Tobago (LATT) and newly appointed Commissioner of Police Erla Christopher.

Opposition Senator Wade Mark, said on Sunday that the Opposition will do whatever it takes to have Armour prosecuted as “two cardinal sins” have been committed against the people of Trinidad and Tobago.


He was speaking at the Opposition’s weekly press briefing.

Referring to Armour, he said, “This gentleman has lost all credibility but he is of the view that we are a gullible population and will forget, after nine days. I want to let him know, that and God’s face he will never see.”

He claimed Armour was attempting to bamboozle the population, and take no responsibility for actions conducted by him or his Office, one of the highest in the country.


Last week, based on a High Court judgement which awarded over $20 million in State funds in compensation to nine men acquitted of the murder of businesswoman Vindra Naipaul-Coolman, partly due to the State failing to defend the malicious prosecution case, the Attorney General and his Office has come under fire from the Opposition and some members of the public.

Armour, in speaking about the matter said it was unacceptable what occurred and a full investigation needed to conducted.

However, Mark said Armour’s should have contacted the police first when he discovered that the file had gone missing from the Solicitor General Office.


Additionally, the same day which he had the press conference to speak on the issue, a US appeals court upheld another US judge’s ruling barring Armour from representing Government in the civil asset forfeiture case in the Miami court.

With both instances, Mark said Armour was not taking any responsibility for the outcomes.

He said, “In the final analysis, everything all points back to the AG’s Office. Whatever happens in that office, the ministry must take responsibility for it.”

He again called on Armour to resign.

The Opposition had already called for his predecessor Faris Al-Rawi to exit Cabinet altogether for his role in the Vindra Naipaul-Coolman matter and others.

Opposition Chief Whip David Lee also spoke at the press conference.
