Calypsonian Lynette "Lady Gypsy" Steele has served a pre-action protocol letter to the Trinbago Unified Calypsonians Association (TUCO) through her attorney Gerald Ramdeen, claiming unfair treatment towards her.
Lady Gypsy was announced as a reserve in the Calypso Monarch Final after she was placed as 16 following the semi-final at Skinner Park on Saturday.
She amassed 389 points,
In the letter, Ramdeen states that Lady Gypsy scored the same points as Anthony "All Rounder" Henderickson who place 15th, noting that no explanation was given as to how with the same score, he was ranked about Lady Gypsy.
The letter also claims that one of the contestants in the competition is not a national of Trinidad and Tobago but rather a national of St Vincent and the Grenadines and therefore should be disqualified from the competition.
Ramdeen is calling on TUCO to state why All Rounder was placed ahead of Lady Gypsy and also on TUCO to disqualify the contestant they believe is not a T&T national.
The letter states that Ramdeen will seek an injunction from the court to block the alleged non-national from performing.
