Independent Liberal Party (ILP) deputy political leader
Lyndira Oudit says she never rented nor was she was
approached to rent her home to former Flying Squad
member Mervyn Cordner.
"I live with my husband and I have three children and
I have three dogs and I am not going anywhere to rent
no house for nobody... What madness," Oudit said on
Thursday night in Penal.
She made the statement in response to allegations made
by Housing Minister Dr Roodal Moonilal who called on
her, on Wednesday, to say if she was approached to rent
her property as headquarters for the controversial New
Oudit, addressing supporters at the party s final national
meeting ahead of today s mass rally in Chaguanas, said
she did not know who Cordner was until she saw his
photo in the newspaper.
Oudit did not mince words as she defended herself
against the allegations which she described as "the wicked-
ness of one delusional, desperate and vile malicious rumour."
She admitted that some time in September/August last
year while on her way home she spoke to a man who was
blocking her from entering her street.
She said the man told her he was looking for a building
to rent for a "special assignment."
Oudit said she told the man she did not know about
any buildings for rent and that he was in a residential area.
"When I saw the picture of Mervyn Cordner, then I
realised that the gentlemen standing there was one and
the same. I never saw him before. I never spoke to him
before, I never spoke to him after and all of a sudden he
is supposedly renting my house," she noted.
Oudit dismissed Moonilal s suggestion that she was not
qualified to hold her post of director of business devel-
opment at the College of Science, Technology and Applied
Arts of T&T (Costaatt).
"I did not buy my MBA, I did not buy my qualifications,"
Oudit said as she defended her post which she held for
the past three years. She said she graduated with her MBA
in January this year.
She said the People s Partnership had no problem with
her qualifications when she was in Parliament or the Sen-

Independent Liberal Party (ILP) Jack
Warner says RamJack is coming back.
Warner made the announcement on
Thursday night while addressing sup-
porters in Penal, mere metres from Prime
Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar s Siparia
The ILP leader said he contacted for-
mer attorney general Ramesh Lawrence
Maharaj on Thursday morning to discuss
the recreation of RamJack.
Warner, who opted to hold his party s
last local government national meetings
in Persad-Bissessar s hometown, said he
contacted Maharaj because he believes
"the time has come when all of us have
to get together to stop this evil."
He said he called Maharaj and the for-
mer AG was cordial and kind to him.
Warner said he was reminded that he
(Maharaj) "told him (Warner) so" and
had warned him.
"I did not want to listen. Panday said
that lady is not ready and I did not want
to listen and today not only I have to pay
the price for my hardenness, but you too
pay that price," he said.
RamJack was a breakaway faction in
the UNC in 2009 with Maharaj, Warner
and Winston Gypsy Peters, all of whom
were UNC MPs at the time. They began
a caravan of change to bring about a
change in the leadership of the party
which was then being led by Basdeo Pan-
Warner commended Maharaj for his
response and willingness to meet.
"He realise that the problem we are
facing is grave, too grave," he said.
Warner said he and Maharaj would
meet after Monday s election,. This
delighted supporters who cheered loudly
and tooted horns.
"RamJack has to be recreated and
Gypsy could stay up there if he want.
But Ramesh and me going down there,"
The ILP leader asked supporters to
question just who was the real owner of
a mall being constructed metres away
from Persad-Bissessar s office in Penal.
Warner then turned his attention to
Attorney General Anand Ramlogan whom
he accused of leaking documents on ILP
deputy leader Anna Deonarine s Range
Rover and her family s multi-million dol-
lar land deal.
He said all signs point to Ramlogan
passing the documents to Crime Watch
host-turned politician Ian Alleyne, to
whom he referred as "Ian Agitation."
Warner said Ramlogan knew Deonarine
had been cleared of wrongdoing.
"Many months ago he knew what the
DPP had said and (he) did nothing about
it hoping to use it at the appropriate time
to, of course, destroy a woman, a lady,
the deputy political leader of this party.
The AG cannot start to apologise," he
He described Ramlogan s actions as
"wickedness of the highest order."
Warner said one should review Ram-
logan s stewardship and his role in the
e-mail scandal, the Section 34 issue and
the 2011 state of emergency.
"Today (Herbert) Volney stands vin-
dicated," he said.
The ILP leader said he would be meet-
ing with a human rights lawyer next week
Thursday to file a lawsuit against the
Government on behalf of Cepep and URP
workers who were fired by Government
on the basis of political, religious or racial
