Prime Minister Dr.Keith Rowley says he has no doubt that there are people in this country who would have preferred him to be held in handcuffs and charged with misusing public money.
Since that can’t happen, Rowley said the next best thing critics can do is question his judgement in dealing with the Marlene McDonald fiasco.
At Thursday’s post cabinet media briefing, the Prime Minister lashed out at critics who came down on him for taking too long to fire McDonald.
Rowley, who is also head of the National Security Council, insisted that he did not get full details of the matter from an official source until about 10.30 pm on Sunday.
“And this information I was getting then wasn’t that she was being questioned but that charges were being written at that time,” he stated.
Rowley said it was only then he began taking steps to remove McDonald from Cabinet.
He said he first learnt that McDonald and others were taken into Police custody via a whatsapp message on someone else’s phone on Thursday.
