(TRINIDAD EXPRESS) — Former politician Jack Warner will have to dig a little deeper in his pocket to compensate former Chaguanas councillor Faaiq Mohammed, in relation to a 2014 lawsuit filed against him.

Warner was initially ordered by a High Court judge to pay Mohammed the sum of $220,000 plus interest after Warner had accused him of taking a bribe from the United National Congress (UNC).

However, a three-judge panel, at the Appeal Court in Port of Spain, yesterday, increased that sum to a total of $650,000.

The panel, comprising Justices Peter Jamadar, Gregory Smith and Prakash Moosai, found the $200,000 in general damages and $20,000 in exemplary damages awarded by Justice Vasheist Kokaram was disproportionate and excessively low.
