But Maharaj has dismissed the charge as "totally incorrect" adding that Panday knew that the Attorney General had hired Canadian forensic investigator Bob Lindquist to investigate the Piarco and Desalination projects.
"The report was prepared and a copy given to Mr Panday", Maharaj told the Trinidad Express.
Maharaj said, "Because no action was taken, I asked Mr Panday what he was doing and he said he had lost the report. I then gave him another copy. Still no action was taken. And while he was Minister of National Security I went to him for feedback on the report. And it was then he fired me."
Maharaj said he would say more to reporters on Wednesday.
Panday said neither Warner nor Maharaj wanted a disciplinary committee set up in the party because "they want to get huge donations for the party and not give any account to the party so that they could build files to blackmail and terrorise people".
