Ancel Roget ordered to pay over $300,000 in damages

OWTU president general Ancel Roget has been ordered to apologise and pay damages to former NP human resources manager Geeta Ragoonath for defamation.

Following the dismissal of over 60 workers from NP, the union reportedly made remarks about Ragoonath accusing her of undermining the independence of the Industrial Court.

Roget said she had written to President Carmona to ask for the removal of the industrial court president because the court had ordered the reinstatement of 68 workers.
