The ruling of the Privy Council to allow United National Congress (UNC) activist Ravi Balgobin Maharaj to file judicial review proceedings seeking disclosure of documents related to Petrotrin’s failed Gas-to-Liquids (GTL) project is not a landmark ruling and is a “run of the mill” procedure. This is according to Attorney General Faris Al-Rawi.
On Monday, the Privy Council ruled that the High Court and Court of Appeal were wrong to dismiss Maharaj’s lawsuit over his failure to obtain the witness statements of former Petrotrin executives Charmaine Baptiste and Anthony Chan Tack, which he had requested under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
