VIDEO: Afra Raymond testimony in the Colman Commission, Day 2, parts I & II

This is the recording of my actual testimony on my Witness Statement and the amended Power Point presentation.

I was led in evidence by Counsel to the Colman Commission, Peter Carter QC, with questions at the close from these parties -

  • Gita Sakal, former CL Financial Corporate Secretary – represented by Justin Phelps, who had a few questions on the post-Shareholders’ Agreeement Directorships.
  • Karen Nunez-Tesheira, former Minister of Finance – represented by Frederick Gilkes, who questioned my assertions on the Minister’s undeclared shareholding.

The transcripts of my testimony are located here.


VIDEO: Afra Raymond testimony in the Colman Commission, Part I

This shows the various attempts by various parties to object to my showing the PowerPoint presentation…some of those parties and their attorneys include -

  • Central Bank – represented by London-based Bankim Thanki QC
  • Lawrence Duprey – represented by London-based Andrew Mitchell QC
  • PriceWaterhouseCoopers – represented by Russell Martineau SC, former Attorney General and former President of the Law Association
  • Andre Monteil – represented by Martin Daly SC, Sunday Express columnist and former President of the Law Association

It is really instructive to consider the various arguments put forward by these parties in an attempt to limit my testimony and ultimately to deny it the benefit of clear illustration via PowerPoint.

There is going to be a real struggle to show the information on this series of financial and economic crimes.  That information needs to be shown in as digestible a form as possible, which was the point of my presentation.

Between the strong opposition of the parties who were at the centre of the crisis and the refusal of the government to fund multi-media facilities, we have a fight on our hands to get at the facts.

RICS logo

This is a podcast Afra Raymond did while in New York on Thursday 14th January at the offices of RICS Americas, the regional HQ of the international professional body, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.

As you will hear, Afra Raymond was speaking from his positions as a Chartered Surveyor, Managing Director of Raymond & Pierre Limited and of course, President of the Institute of Surveyors of Trinidad & Tobago. He focused on 2 matters

  1. the new Property Tax recently passed by our Parliament and,
  2. the Uff Commission of Enquiry into the Public Sector Construction Industry.

He concluded by reminding listeners that the RICS’ principal cause was that of “serving the public interest” and that that was one of the main engines for him as a campaigning surveyor.
