Seven security firms which safeguard and pro-
tect the nation’s school children are owed $72.6
million by the Ministry of Education.
The figure was given on Tuesday by Education
Minister Anthony Garcia in response to a ques-
tion posed by Opposition Senator Taharqa Obika
in the Senate. Obika queried the amount owed
to security firms and when will the payments be
Garcia said while the ministry owed $72.6 to
the seven firms, his ministry has since processed
invoices to the value of $52 million.
Of this figure, Garcia said $33 million has since
“Payments to security firms have been made
in an ongoing process as invoices are processed
and the releases obtained from the Finance Min-
In a supplemental question, Obika asked Gar-
cia if any of the firms had threatened to withhold
its services at the schools.
“No such information has come to my knowl-
edge,” Garcia said.
Obika asked Garcia if he was aware that secu-
rity officers at one primary school in Point Fortin
did not report for work in December, which the
minister said this was news to him.
“I am surprised that that information is now
being brought forward now. A school not having
security in December...we are in January.”
Garcia said his permanent secretary recently
met with representatives of these firms who have
given their commitment to continue to provide
security for the schools.
“They are fully aware of the financial situation
we are confronted with, and of our challenges.
We will do everything to ensure that they are
paid,” Garcia said. (SH)
Energy Minister Franklin Khan
has denied that cash-strapped
Petrotrin will be sold to ANSA
McAL and Neal and Massy Group
Khan also refuted allegations
that next month the State-owned
oil company will retrench 2,000
of its employees.
He was dismissing reports that
surfaced on social media on Tues-
day, claiming that ANSA McAL
was in line to buy 65 per cent of
Petrotrin, with Neal and Massy
obtaining 25 per cent ownership
and Government retaining a mere
ten per cent.
“I want to totally debunk that
rumour. There is no truth to this
information circulating on Face-
book. The Government has taken
no such decision. This rumour is
clearly designed to try to affect
Government’s thinking and policy
Khan said the Government has
been very transparent in treating
with issues at Petrotrin which is
faced with serious financial chal-
“It is an undeniable fact. They
are up to their nose in debts.
Their debt profile is now $13 bil-
lion. They have a bullet payment
that is due in 2019 of US$850 mil-
Reiterating that Petrotrin has
been operating at a loss,
Khan said the company
has not been generating
any working capital,
while it remains poorly
The Government, he
said was taking one step
at a time with Petrotrin.
“It’s the Govern-
ment’s view that once
Petrotrin is restructured
and put on an even keel
it can be profitable.
Something went fun-
damentally wrong with
Petrotrin in the last
seven years. This was
a company that made
money and profits.”
He said thousands
of people depend on
Petrotrin for their liveli-
hood “so we would not
shut down Petrotrin like
Khan said his minis-
try will consult with the
Oilfields Workers’ Trade
Union, its workers and
contractors to craft out
a solution to reorganise
the company. (See Page
