The Police Commissioner and the
aide-de-camp at President's House are
"looking into" whether any security
breach occurred when a man whose name
was not on the guest list for last Friday's
swearing-in ceremony of a government
minister, was allowed to access the Pres-
ident's office, National Security Minister
Edmund Dillon has said.
Dillon revealed this in the Senate yesterday,
replying to queries from Opposition Senator
Mark had asked if a security breach had oc-
curred at President's House when the man
whose name was not on the guest list was
allowed access to the Office of the President
to attend the event last Friday.
Dillon said he was unable to say if a breach
had occurred, adding, "The aide-de-camp
(Major Dwayne Edwards) and the (acting)
Commissioner of Police (Stephen Williams)
are looking into the matter."
Mark asked when the report will be con-
cluded by the aide-de-camp Dillon couldn't
Sea Lots jefe Cedric "Burkie" Burke was able
to walk past Special Branch officers and had
full access to the President's Office while pos-
ing for photos with now fired minister Marlene
McDonald and President Anthony Carmona.
Burke, who wore a yellow shirt, not tucked
in his trousers and a tie, to the event said he
had been invited by his friend, Kenroy Dop-
well, another Sea Lots don, to attend the event
to celebrate McDonald's return to the Cabinet.
McDonald was sacked by Prime Minister
Dr Keith Rowley 48 hours later after she was
found guilty by association with a man who
has been on the radar of national security
agencies for years now.
Among remarks, Rowley said a review of
the security situation at President's House
was needed, systems required tightening in-
cluding observances of protocols and ensuring
water-tight systems there.
Following the overall McDonald issue, Burke
has asked the Police Commissioner to say if
there is any criminal investigation against him.
Yesterday, security officials explained, the
CoP and President's House aide-de-camp
were examining last Friday's function from
two different aspects.
They said the aide-de-camp was looking
into it from the President's House adminis-
trative side while the CoP was examining it
from the aspect of Special Branch.
On Tuesday, checks confirmed that after
news regarding the function broke hours after
the swearing-in ceremony, President's House
officials immediately sought to "look into"
the matter with an examination by the aide-
A source confirmed Burke's name was not
on the guest list, but he arrived with someone
else, Dopwell, and they both sat in the outer
reception office and were asked to remain
there. McDonald arrived shortly after, saw
Burke, then everyone proceeded "upstairs."
Sources claimed the situation occurred
"very fast" as "the Prime Minister was ar-
riving at the same time she did." They said
Burke was perceived as a guest of a proposed
The function had occurred at 1.30 pm.
By 3.41 pm, watchdog group Fixin T&T had
posted a photo from the function featuring
