Minister of Finance Colm Imbert is assuring the Protective Services that they will be paid 50% of their outstanding arrears by the end of June.

In a media release on Friday, Minister Imbert said he has taken note of concerns expressed by members of the Protective Services regarding payment of arrears of salary.

He said the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Finance has been directed to instruct all relevant Government Departments and Agencies to immediately process all outstanding payments and not wait on releases before commencing the processing of these payments.

The Minister of Finance also confirmed that the required funding to make the 50% payment at the end of June 2016 has been sourced.

Accordingly, it is now up to the relevant Departments and Agencies, such as the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service, the Ministry of National Security, the Ministry of Health and the Regional Health Authorities, among others, to diligently complete the paperwork required to make the payments.

The Ministry of Finance will be closely monitoring this situation over the coming weeks.

On Thursday, members of the Protective Services held a Joint Media Conference and said they weren't confident the Government will keep its promise to pay half of all outstanding arrears by June 30th.
