(TRINIDAD EXPRESS) – THE firing of Nigel Forgenie, former chief executive officer (CEO) of the Youth Training and Employment Partnership Programme (YTEPP), should send a message to all public officials that there will be sanctions for lying, says Government Minister Fitzgerald Hinds.

“In the United States (lying under oath) is a crime of high order with severe sanctions so that I am happy about that. At the same time I’m sad that we are not operating at the level where (Forgenie) would not have had to wait to be fired but rather would have taken a walk down the gauntlet himself on the basis of the fact that he had first said that there was no relative, then he said there was an in-law and then he belatedly admitted it was his wife, obviously trying to hide the perhaps severe conflict of interest,” said Hinds when asked about the decision by the YTEPP board to fire Forgenie.
