One for the record

Saturday, June 9, 2018

I feel compelled to express my concern over a news feature, aired on CNC3, over five months ago to be exact, on December 31st, 2017. It was during the 2017 “Year in Review” feature when mention was made of the passing of former Petrotrin chairman Mr Malcolm Jones and the fact he was awarded a $3 million settlement by the courts of Trinidad and Tobago. What was not mentioned, however, was that although he was indeed awarded the sum of $3 million, he never actually received a dime of that money or any other monies for that matter. The entire sum went to the lawyers who represented him. The court of public opinion is not aware of this fact.

I remain puzzled, however, that those who are aware of this, have not seen it fit to rectify it after all this time. This inaction simply allows this inaccurate public perception to remain. The disrespect shown towards this goodly gentleman continues even after his demise.

Would it be too much to ask that Malcolm Jones be left to rest in the peace that he so richly deserves? I should think not.
