Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar is calling on the Prime Minister to stop dithering on the serious allegations of fraud at Petrotrin and take immediate action. 

In a press statement, the Opposition Leader says Dr. Keith Rowley once again failed to take decisive action on this serious matter, choosing instead to cast aspersions on the Opposition in an attempt to deflect from the gravity of the allegations.

She adds this matter reaches far beyond Petrotrin and is serious enough to warrant the attention of the DPP, Commissioner of Police and Integrity Commission. 

The Opposition Leader says the Prime Minister's admission that he spoke to his "good friend" Nazim Baksh is cause for alarm. 

She asks, "By speaking with the person who runs the company accused of a crime whose interest is Rowley seeking?” 

She says the Opposition maintains its call on the Government to take immediate steps to follow the money, freeze assets and ensure that the country recovers what has been taken from it.
