Coup commissioner Mohammed refuses to step down: Guardian report

Hafizool Mohammed
Hafizool Mohammed has refused a government request to step down as a member of the commission of enquiry into the 1990 coup attempt, the Guardian newspaper reported Friday.

The Guardian broke the story earlier in the week about Mohammed's bogus academic credentials, stating that Mohammed admitted that he got his doctorate from a diploma mill that is unaccredited. 

In addition the paper reported its checks revealed that the U.S. military academy where Mohammed claimed to have studied had no record of him.

Mohammed is an American citizen and lives in the U.S. He is originally from Dow Village, Trinidad and was recommended to serve on the commission by Foreign Minister Winston Dookeran.

The Guardian said it has learned that Jagdeo Singh, an attorney for the commission, and Justice Minister Christlyn Moore met with Mohammed on Tuesday and asked him to step down. The paper quoted unnamed Cabinet as saying that the government is awaiting a response from Mohammed's lawyers.
