Board members issue 'disclaimer' over leak

PORT OF SPAIN — Seven of the nine board members of the Chaguaramas Development Authority yesterday issued a “disclaimer” over an October 14 Sunday Guardian story, distancing themselves from a move to track down the newspaper’s source of information by going through the confidential telephone records of a T&T Guardian reporter.

Chaguaramas Development Authority chairman Daniel Solomon.

The telephone records were sought after a September 9 article reporting that CDA board members had objected to a decision to grant an extension to continue contracting out legal services. The other two board members are CDA chairman Danny Solomon and chairman of human resources Christopher Street, who is also vice president of the NUGFW.

But one of the other seven board members, in a telephone interview yesterday, said: “There are a lot of disgruntled people at the CDA. There have been many people who have had their services terminated or (have been) removed from their posts and sent elsewhere.”

Left in the dark

The board member added since statutory meetings had been suspended, members were left in the dark as to the running of the CDA and also were left out of key decision-making.

“There are concrete platforms which we recommended the CDA lease to earn extra income. Advertisements were put out, leases were drawn up and then nothing has happened. “The board members do not know what is going on because there have been no meetings,” he added.

He added that e-mails sent to Solomon expressing their concern had gone unanswered. (Guardian)
