Judiciary denies not filing auditor general accounts

The Judiciary is advising the public that contrary to statements made in the Senate on June 21st 2018, it has filed accounts to the Auditor General for the period 2014 to 2017.

The Judiciary issued a statement on Wednesday in which it responded to a member of the Upper House who allegedly claimed that no audits were filed during this period.

“This erroneous statement has been repeated by the media and the Law Association of Trinidad and Tobago and damages the integrity of the Judiciary and its accounting officers during this period.”

As a result, the Judiciary says it has written to the Auditor General and the Senator who made the statement. It added that it has also written to the Clerk of the Senate in an effort to have the record addressed.

The release did not identify the senator in question.
