Roodal calls on Dillon …”EXPLAIN THE US $10 SALE”

Spread the word
Oropouche East Member of Parliament, Dr Roodal Moonilal, has called on Minister of National Security Edmund Dillon, to explain the sale of a Manhattan, New York condominium to a Trinidadian pensioner.

Moonilal issued the following release on Monday:

“Minister of National Security Edmund Dillon has a responsibility to explain to the nation why he sold his disputed New York apartment after he had insisted he was not guilty in the messy property dispute.

Mr. Dillon has a duty to justify the sale of the luxury mansion for a peppercorn US $10.

The curious sale follows the Minister’s court appearance on the property and his subsequent insistence that there had been no finding of wrongdoing against him.

The public scandal over Mr. Dillon’s property has further affected the credibility of the Minister, whose woeful non-performance has now made him the subject of public ridicule. One daily newspaper has even dubbed him a “national bobolee.”

The property row and Mr. Dillon’s defence of his alleged misdeeds have distracted his attention from one of the most critical and urgent jobs in Trinidad and Tobago – protecting a besieged nation form an unprecedented crime epidemic.

Mr. Dillon’s abject failure as Minister of National Security has led him to face a no-confidence motion from the parliamentary Opposition, acting on behalf of an overwhelmed country. A motion that remains alive in the Parliament and one to which I will am eager to contribute.

It’s now a matter of public record that Mr. Dillon’s response was a cocktail of callousness, coldness and contempt.

The latest development in the property dispute raises more pertinent questions about Trinidad and Tobago’s much derided Minister of National Security.”

Dillon was listed as the seller of the apartment, located at 301 Cathedral Parkway, New York, NY 10026, just off the northern end of Central Park.

He had previously said that Piper, 88, had gifted him the apartment because they had been best friends when they both lived in La Brea. He has also maintained that he has been found not guilty of any wrongdoing. Dillon had appeared before the New York Supreme Court on April 4, the same day the new deed and transfer report of the apartment is dated, to settle the property dispute, initially brought against him by Piper’s niece, Esther Nicholls, who alleged that Dillon had sought to defraud Piper of his property and bank account.
