Moonilal accuses Mitchell of attempting to muzzle media

Opposition MP Dr Roodal Moonilal is taking issue with his predecessor in the Housing Ministry, Randall Mitchell, accusing him of attempting to muzzle the media.

He is calling moves to serve host Phillip Alexander with a legal letter as extraordinary and treacherous.

He says Mitchell must publicly explain why he took the unprecedented move and is describing the development as dangerous saying it's intended to scare and intimidate citizens from exercising their constitutionally-entrenched right to freedom of expression.

Housing Minister to meet with woman he "steupsed" at tomorrow

Trinidad Guardian: “Out of evil cometh good,” homeless Mary Paria said yesterday, as she revealed that Housing Minister Randall Mitchell has arranged to meet her tomorrow. She hopes that meeting leads to Mitchell providing her with a place to call home.

The meeting is scheduled to take place at Mitchell’s San Fernando East constituency office at 8.30 am, Paria said. She also said she felt happy the minister, who originally “steupsed” at her request for a house, had publicly apologised for his behaviour.
