PORT-OF-SPAIN – Teams of lawyers working in at least six separate jurisdictions on the international criminal investigation against the CL Financial empire once led by Lawrence Duprey have all been terminated.The firings late last month by Attorney General Anand Ramlogan have raised concern in both political and legal circles about whether the government would continue to pursue the expensive probe.Among the lawyers whose briefs were terminated were Ed Davis of Florida, United States, Marlene Davidge of Canada, Queen’s Counsel James Lewis of Britain, Senior Counsel Douglas Mendes, Frederick Gilkes, Michael Quamina and Stuart Young in Trinidad and Tobago, as well as lawyers in Barbados, the Cayman Islands, Turks and Caicos, and Guernsey in the Channel Islands.Questioned on the latest move, Ramlogan told the Express that the “CLICO matter is being actively investigated and considered by my office. And I intend to explore both civil and criminal liability in pursuit of justice on behalf of the innocent investors and policy holders”. (Trinidad Express)
