Monday, September 11, 2017 - 20:45

Confirmation tonight that Petrotrin is currently investigating a discrepancy in the amount of oil from one of its operators.

It comes from the energy minister who was responding to claims made by the opposition leader that Petrotrin paid a PNM financier over 11 million US dollars for fake oil.

At a news conference, this afternoon Minister Khan sought to deny any political link to those being investigated but admitted the daughter of the operator is currently a PNM senator.

Reporter Ria Rambally has the details.
