PORT OF SPAIN:
Google has denied a request from the Trinidad and Tobago government to remove 10 videos currently posted on YouTube featuring Prime Minister Kamla Persad Bissessar and Attorney General Anand Ramlogan.
The Trinidad Guardian newspaper reported Friday that the videos are parodies that feature the two senior government ministers.
It said nine of the videos feature Persad-Bissessar dancing with a bottle in hand, while Ramlogan is featured in an interview which took place last year with Dominic Kalipersad, head of news at the CCN TV6 on the state of emergency that had been announced by the coalition government to deal with the rising crime situation here.
In the video, the veteran newsman is heard demonising Ramlogan, stating at one point “Please don’t be rude.”
