Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar is once again calling for the removal of the Attorney General Faris Al-Rawi.

This, as the Private Motion filed by the Opposition last month to expres loss of confidence in Attorney General has not yet been voted on.

Speaking to supporters at UNC's Monday Night Forum in San Fernando, Mrs. Persad-Bissessar said the Motion was filed based on Mr. Al-Rawi's conduct in the Malcolm Jones matter, which related to the discontinuation of a case in the High Court against the former Executive President of State-owned Petrotrin.

She said during her tenure as Prime Minister, all Motions of No Confidence were addressed.

"The Motion qualified for debate on the 26th of May. There was a Private Members Day the very next day, on the 27th. But guess what? They did not convene the Parliament. They now saying they will do it on the 24th of June and so they have deprived the Opposition of the one day the Opposition has in a month, every month, one day for Private Members Day."

The Opposition Leader also questioned Government's plans to withdraw $2.5 billion from the Heritage and Stabilisation Fund saying Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley owed the nation a further explanation.
