COP disagrees with Jamal; calls statement at media briefing :misleading".

The Congress of the People (COP) issued a media release on Friday in which it took issue with a statement made the day before by Communication Minister Jamal Mohammed that "the Minister of National Security, Mr. Jack Warner enjoys the full support of every single member of the Cabinet”. 

Mohammed made the statement at the weekly Post-Cabinet news Conference at the office of the Prime Minister.

The release from Omar Ali, Secretary for Communication of COP, called the minister's statement "misleading". 

It added, "The party has consistently stood by the principle that, any public figure facing serious allegations should step down and allow a full investigation to reveal the facts. 

"In this regard the COP is on record calling on two occasions for the Honourable Minister of National Security to step down. Similar positions were taken with respect to other public figures.

"The COP strives to adhere to our founding principles, our commitment to maintaining the highest standard of good governance and the Fyzabad accord. The success of the Partnership starts with every Cabinet Minister and its failure could have a damaging effect on future generations.

"The COP makes no pronouncement on the guilt or innocence of any individual facing allegations in the public domain."
