Prime minister Dr Keith Rowley is distancing himself and his government from Petrotrin's handling of its contract with A&V Oil and Gas.

During the prime minister's question and answer session in parliament earlier today, Dr Rowley stated that he has no authority to refer the current matter regarding the fake oil investigation to the fraud squad for a criminal investigation.
