Keith Rowley told reporters Friday Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar must fire Jack Warner.

That was the opposition leader's reaction to a Concacaf Integrity Committee report that harshly criticised the National Security Minister's administration while he headed Concacaf.

Rowley said the Prime Minister can no longer pretend not to know the seriousness of the allegations made against Warner.

He added: “I am not here to pronounce on guilt or innocence. But the weight of the allegations are too heavy to be borne by a Minister of Government in Trinidad and Tobago. 
The Cabinet has no requirement to provide refuge for a person who is in that situation...

"This is not a matter of the individual. It is a matter of protecting the institution of the Cabinet and the people of Trinidad and Tobago. The Prime Minister must now act, as she should have done a long time ago."

Rowley said the PNM is taking a motion to Parliament next Friday. It states: "Be it resolved that the House expresses its disapproval of the refusal of the Prime Minister to take appropriate action to protect the image and interest of the people of Trinidad and Tobago which is being consistently damaged by the actions and business of the Minister of National Security."
