Deputy Commissioner of Police Mervyn
Richardson, who is the lead investigator in the
ongoing e-mail probe, says while the police had
covered a lot of ground in the probe, they are
still awaiting answers from US-based Google.
A response from the US-based company, he
said, was now key to the investigation.
Richardson told the T&T Guardian the infor-
mation from Google would assist in bringing the
matter to a close.
Asked if there was a particular time frame for
the investigation to be closed, Richardson said:
"I hope soon. We are still awaiting a response
from Google and the sooner we get that, it would
push this inquiry further.
"We have no choice but to wait on them."
Saying he was pleased with the progress of the
case, Richardson said the police were proceeding
"We have interviewed a number of people last
week, and we will also be interviewing several
people this week, with the aim of bringing this
matter to a close," he said.
"I am pleased with the progress thus far and
we have got co-operation from everyone thus

General Anand Ramlogan, Local Government and
Works Minister Suruj Rambachan and security
adviser to the Prime Minister, Gary Griffith, visited
the investigating officers at the police adminis-
tration building in Port-of-Spain, yesterday.
It was a busy day for Richardson and his men.

panied by his attorney Robin Montano.
Before he went in, Griffith was asked what was
the nature of his visit, to which he replied: "I
don t know about anybody else. I here to see

Pressed on whether there was anything she could
tell the public, Persad-Bissessar said: "Have a great
day. I am heading down to Rienzi (Complex). I have
an executive meeting and we will begin screening
of the candidates for Chaguanas West."
Concerns to be ironed out---lawyers
Ramlogan and Rambachan were accompanied by
their attorneys, Pamela Elder, SC, and former High
Court judge Larry Lalla.
They arrived at the administration building at 10
am and were provided with special parking arrange-
Ramlogan and Rambachan, who walked with their
electronic devices, met with Richardson and ten
other officers for almost three hours. However, they
left with their items.
Elder said the discussion was "frank and mean-
ingful" but said concerns were expressed to the police
about certain rights.
"We expressed certain concerns of our clients
protection of constitutional rights to privacy," she
"We also expressed concerns of confidentiality of
digital evidence not being compromised by any inad-
vertence or any alterations which may ultimately
affect the conclusion of the investigation.
"In essence, we wanted to be certain that the nec-
essary protocols of methodology were in place for
forensic examination of digital material and we left
with certain issues still to be addressed."
Expressing confidence that the issues would be
resolved soon, Elder said Ramlogan and Rambachan
were willing to co-operate with the police.
