Response from Jack Warner
Dear Ms Marajh,If I choose to answer any one of your questions (as shown below) wrappedwithin your own expression of opinions and false judgment what I would bedoing is validating character assassination posing as investigativejournalism.If one is asked a question on matters that never really existed in reality andit is denied, the headlines then scream "Jack Warner denies X" which simplyplaces the fabrication out there and achieves the assassin's true objective.In Trinidad and Tobago, public officials, such as I, are expected, and rightlyso, to be held accountable. I recognise and respect this and have neverasked nor have been given any quarter in this regard. But shouldn't there beequal accountability by any member of the media and the media houserepresented? Who investigates the background and agenda of the author of the investigative piece when bias is alleged by the hapless victim of anycontrived story?The right of you or anyone else to ask a question should be equally weighedby my own right to question the true intent of the reporter and the mediaorganisation represented. My obligation to answer your questions for anarticle which I am advised will appear in your paper this Sunday must beequally met by your own dutiful obligation and that of your paper to be fair,unbiased, balanced and professional. In the absence of that I am releasedfrom my own duty to provide any responses to your many questions.I can supply ample evidence of the blatantly biased reportage anddefamatory articles on my family and me that have consistently appearedover time. Even pursuing legal action, which I have done on occasions,doesn't subtract the damage already done and the purpose served by thosewho choose to destroy anyone's nameSuffice it to say,it was Ria Taitt last Sunday, it is now Camini Marajh thisSunday, keep on writing Ms Marajh, you and others............in themeantime, I bask in the hope that one day you too will be "getting itwrite".If you do not understand what I am saying then I refer you to Page 7of your Friday Express newspaper where there is an article by Rev. DrWinston Cuffie titled -
STEP DOWN, WARNER ! THE BORING DETRACTORS'JOKE -
try to read it if you have not done so as yet. Finally, I attended the funeral service for the late Jerome Dominic Ramsahaiat 10:00 o'clock this morning. It was held at Our Lady of Perpetual Churchon Harris Promenade, San Fernando. Several lovely hymns were sungthroughout the service but the one that struck me the most was the onewhich said "
Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me."
