Chairman of the Mayaro/Rio Claro Regional Corporation Ramlochan
Panchoo said yesterday that he will be seeking legal advice
on how to proceed with councillor Dansam Dhansook, now that
charges have been laid against PNM chairman Franklin Khan
arising out of bribery allegations he (Dhansook) made.
cannot act on allegations made in the media, Pancoo
there is a conviction by a court of law only, if and when
that is determined, then I can act.
In the interim, I dont want to proceed and then two
years later I get sued when I am no longer in office.
He said while there were also calls for the removal of Dhansook
as a sitting councillor from the MRCRC, Panchoo said he thinks
he should be protected.
the last statutory meeting, councillor Dhansook stood up in
the council chamber and said he feels threatened.
my view, that person should be protected, Panchoo said.
