UDP Member Hopes for Cooperation from those called in Special Senate Committee Inquiry

Supporting the selection of Senator Janelle Chanona as the Chair of the Special Senate Committee is Michael Peyrefitte.  In an interview done yesterday, Peyrefitte says he hopes that once the committee hearings get underway that those called upon to appear, will do so.  He was referring primarily to Prime Minister John Briceno who told the media that he doesn’t see why he should be called to the hearing.

Michael Peyrefitte, UDP Chairman: “Well it was expected that one of the non governmental senators would be chair, it’s their motion, it’s their committee and there’s no issue with that. He’s a colleague and you will have four of them, you will have two from government and one from the opposition so let’s hope it gets underway really fast and let’s just hope that the people who they want to call respect the committee enough to attend when they’re called even if they believe they’re above the law and don’t need to be called because the committee can call anybody, any minister, anybody they want to call. And if you’re called to testify before the committee you need to attend and answer the questions.”
