Theresa Hadad, the private attor-
ney of Attorney General Faris Al-
Rawi, has received a lucrative state
The disclosure was made in the
Senate yesterday afternoon by Oppo-
sition Senator Wayne Sturge during
his presentation to the debate on the
Sturge, an attorney, whose gun
was trained on the AG for most of
his presentation, said lawyers senior
to Hadad in the AG s office were
reportedly concerned about why they
were by-passed in favour of her.
Sturge also called on the Attorney
General to say whether lawyers
appearing for the Elections and
Boundaries Commission (EBC) in the
Opposition s election writ were
rewarded with State briefs and what
the fees were.
Al-Rawi, contacted for a response,
said he was in a meeting in Paris and
it was 9 pm. He confirmed Hadad
was hired for the State s matter
involving Rajaee Ali who is incarcer-
ated at the Port-of-Spain State Prison
on gang-related charges.
Attorney Gerald Ramdeen, repre-
senting Ali, brought a matter against
the State seeking to have Ali removed
from his present place of incarcer-
ation to another, Al-Rawi said.
However, Hadad was hired only
after every single other State attorney
refused the brief because of safety
concerns, he added. He said the Ali
matter was an emergency application
made in the Court of Appeal and
State attorneys categorically said they
were unprepared when asked by him
to handle the matter.
"Every attorney refused. The only
attorney available at the time was
the instructing attorney (Hadad).
The matter is a very sensitive one
and being handled very carefully," he
Acting AG, Stuart Young, also gave
a fiery response to Sturge in the Sen-
ate. Repeating what Al-Rawi told the
T&T Guardian, he gave kudos to
Hadad for "doing what is right and
accepting the brief."
Young deftly avoided mention of
how much Hadad was being paid by
stating that the PNM was going to
change the fee schedule for attorneys
so they were paid hourly.
Al-Rawi also responded to state-
ments made by Sturge about 1
Alexandra Street, Port-of-Spain.
In response to the Government s
charge that the contract for the out-
fitting of the building at 1 Alexandra
Street by the last administration
reeked of corruption, Sturge told the
Senate that $45 million in taxpayers
money was paid to Al-Rawi s father-
in-law for the rental of the property,
even while it was empty.
Al-Rawi, confirming his father-
in-law was the landlord, said every-
thing was above board. He said that
was not the issue. The issue was the
questions over the outfitting contract.
Young, in the Senate, described
Sturge s disclosures as a "cowardly
attack on someone who was not
there to defend himself."
He said there was absolutely noth-
ing wrong paying rent for an empty
The rental agreement on the build-
ing had been in place since 2009
and since 2010 the Government has
been paying $8.2 million annually in
rent, at $690,000 a month, for the
empty building in addition to
$927,360 a year for security.
NJ Nahous Investments Ltd is the
company listed at the building. Direc-
tors include Nazem Nahous, Jinan
Nahous, Michael Nahous, Gina
Nahous-Hajdar and Mona Nahous-
Al Rawi, Al-Rawi s wife.
Acting Attorney General Stu-
art Young says the alleged
wrongdoing with premises
known as 1 Alexandra Place
related to the award of contract
to outfit the building, which was
to be the head office of the Min-
istry of Local Government.
Young was contributing to
yesterday s Senate debate on the
2016 national Budget. Agriculture
Minister Clarence Rambharat
spoke about the issue on Tues-
Young said the allegations of
wrongdoing "would become even
clearer as we move forward in
months (and has) to do with the
outfitting of 1 Alexandra Place."
He told legislators there "had
been no suggestion of wrong-
doing whatsoever with respect
to rental of the building."
He insisted it was not unusual
or abnormal for a person to rent
an empty building and then to
outfit it to his own specifica-
"There is absolutely nothing
wrong and I challenge anyone to
say it is unusual to have a building
that is empty and then outfit it
to your own specs," the minister
"The elements and allegations
of corruption, which I am not
going to get into at any level of
detail because that would be for
others to follow, is with respect
to the award of the contracts for
the outfitting of this building."
Young said the award of con-
tracts was done by the former
The minister said the nation
was thankful for "a strong public
service and strong public ser-
vants" who refused "to give in
to the (then) line minister s
request for a particular contractor
to be given a contract for the
outfitting that was tens of mil-
lions of dollars above what the
quantity surveyor required. That
is the element of corruption
which must be investigated."
Young said the Government
would provide more resources to
the Office of the Director of Pub-
lic Prosecutions which was cur-
rently under resourced.
He said the Office of the DPP
was an "extremely important ele-
ment in the improvement of the
criminal justice system."
Young objected to name-call-
ing by Opposition Senator Wayne
Sturge earlier in the debate. He
also said Sturge made a "very
upsetting and disappointing
attack on a young attorney,
He said Sturge "tried to make
a correlation and a link between
Hadad and the Attorney Gener-
al."Young then said: "The only
reason Ms Hadad was retained
by the Ministry of the Attorney
General to do this case was
because the State attorneys that
were asked to do the case (it),
feared for their lives."
He then said it was "the case
dealing with Rajaee Ali."
Young said when Al-Rawi
"approached those in our min-
istry and asked them to take up
the cause, it was an emergency
application being made to the
Court of Appeal by the favoured
juniors (attorneys) on the other
side (opposition) the state attor-
neys told us they were not pre-
pared to take the case."
"The prison officer, who is
dealing with it, received a death
threat. How could we then ask
these young attorneys in our
ministry to go forth in those cir-
He said he was proud of the
attorney "for stepping up to the
plate and taking the brief."
He added that "the fees in that
matter have not been set," adding
the new PNM Government will
use a fee schedule.
