Trinidad & Tobago: Arresting developments

Christopher Yee Mon scoffs at the claim by Trinidad & Tobago's Opposition leader Basdeo Panday that members of his own party were treated more harshly when warrants were obtained for their arrest than members of the ruling PNM. Mr. Panday, who was slapped with a corruption charge in 2005, made these statements in the wake of the charging of Trinidad & Tobago's Minister of Energy with “corruptly receiving” TT$75,000 (approx. US$12,000).
