Guyana sends delegation to Trinidad

Guyana sends delegation to Trinidad
Published: 15 June 2009

A five-man delegation will be representing Guyana this week at the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) when the lawsuit filed by Trinidad Cement Limited and TCL Guyana Limited will be heard.

The cement companies are suing the government over a unilateral suspension of the Common External Tariff (CET) on cement.

The team that departed Guyana consists of three legal personnel and two Ministry of Foreign Trade staff.

Kaieteur News understands that the case against the government is very strong and it has already been conceded at the government level that Guyana will lose the case.

This newspaper was told that the team was sent in an effort to have the CCJ reduce the amount that the government was sued for, since that amount is substantial.

The case will be called before the CCJ on Tuesday in Port of Spain.
