Trinidad and Tobago’s Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley last night assured the nation that if the Housing Minister is found guilty of any wrong doing he will take action, saying he would not ignore new information which has come to light.

Speaking during a CNC3 live interview last night, Rowley said he had a discussion with Housing Minister Marlene McDonald and would make a pronouncement on the matter “shortly”, after fresh evidence surfaced in the media yesterday, involving her husband Michael Carew and his brother Lennox Carew.

According to the Trinidad Guardian Newspaper, a report surfaced yesterday, which showed that Mc Donald’s husband Michael Carew and a director of the Calabar Foundation was employed at her Port-of-Spain South constituency office for five years, while Michael’s brother, Lennox, still worked at the MP’s office.

Michael Carew, who worked at the office from June 1, 2010 to September 7, 2015, earned the second highest salary of $13,400 on the constituency payroll for the full parliamentary term, while his brother began working in the office on March 1, 2011 and has been in receipt of the highest salary of $14,000 out of 13 people working in the office.
