She said she asked about it from members of her cabinet and received no such information.
Persad-Bissessasr was questioned about the matter during a visit to Aranguez office of the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF).
"I would be very concerned about anybody's son , indeed if they were one of my ministers but I have no information on any minister's son who is in any circumstances abroad. I have no such information advised or knowledged," the Express newspaper quoted the PM as saying.
Media reports have stated that the son of a cabinet minister is under investigation but did not name the minister. Opposition Leader Keith Rowley has asked for the minister to be identified.
She also commented on the suitability of the Commissioner of Police (CoP) to investigate allegations relating to the New Flying Squad.
Persad-Bissessar said, "I do believe the office of the Commissioner of Police is the best office at this time to conduct such an investigation where there are alleged criminal activities that might have taken place, there might have been fraud that might have been committed.
"I am of the respectful view that the office of the Commissioner of the Police is best poised and resourced at this time to conduct that investigation. We shall see what happens next."
