ning entry at the Tobago
House of Assembly s
(THA) two-day exhibi-
tion at the Shaw Park
Complex on December
2 and 3 in commemora-
tion of Tobago Day.
A statement from the
THA said the television
was sponsored by Stan-
dard Distributors, whose
staff was also on hand
to witness the expression
of shock the Scarbor-
ough Secondary student
wore throughout the
presentation at his
Calder Hall home.
His mother, Jacquelin
Dyer, was also stunned
when she received a call
from chief administrator
Raye Sandy informing
her of the prize.
She kept it a secret

Govt mum on Jwala
Finance Minister Colm Imbert yesterday
continued to maintain silence on the future
of Central Bank Governor Jwala Rambarran
In response to emailed queries about the
status of the matter, if talks would be held
with Rambarran and about reports that a
note had been prepared for Thursday s cab-
inet meeting on taking action against Ram-
barran, Imbert replied, "no comment."
The issue concerning the governor has
become the catalyst for conversation from
businessmen, the Opposition Leader and
public interest lobbyists after Rambarran s
revelations on the country s largest forex
consumers caused outcry from some big
businesses. Government sought legal advice
on whether his move constituted misconduct
in relation to his duties---a basis for termi-
nation---and whether the President could
reject any instruction to fire him.
Prime Minister Keith Rowley subsequently
panned Rambarran s actions, saying if he
"ends up" losing his job it would be due to
his own "reckless" actions. Rowley has been
mum on the matter since.
Yesterday, sources said Finance officials
had been awaiting the return of Imbert who
has been out of office from last Saturday
to December 17. They also confirmed that
Government had in hand the legal advice
it sought on the matter and would "do what-
ever it has to."
Sources close to Rambarran said yesterday
he was not making any statement and was
going to wait until something "is officially
released" before doing anything. They reit-
erated he would challenge any move to oust

wife. When he returned home to T&T in
May he was questioned by local security
agencies. When he returned to SA in August
he was detained there. His father Shamoon
said yesterday he and his cousin, attorney
Nafeesa Mohammed had contacted the Saudi
authorities who indicated they had sent all
information on the matter to T&T.
Mohammed said he d learned a clearance
letter---confirming his son was a bonafide
student and there were no issues about him
---was done in T&T and had to be sent to
He said he was awaiting word from the
Foreign Affairs Ministry on this. Mohammed
said his son was not being mistreated and
had been allowed to call home twice so far.
Mohammed reiterated that his son was not
a terrorist and his name could have been
mixed up with other persons of the same
name involved in illegal activities on that
side of the world.
National Security Minister Edmund Dillon,
who recently said Mohammed was being
detained for questioning, said yesterday
he s been following up on the situation. For-
eign Affairs Ministry officials to whom an
emailed query was sent on the issue, didn t
