STATEMENT ON ERRONEOUS INFORMATION PUBLISHED
December 17, 2007
It has been brought to the my attention that an article under the headline ‘Barbados oilman warns: Chavez trying to mash up Caricom’ allegedly based on comments attributed to the General Manager of the Barbados National Oil Company (BNOC) has appeared in some sections of the Trinidad & Tobago Press of Tuesday, December 11, 2007 and been subsequently relayed throughout the region.
This headline on the PetroCaribe was based on statements I supposedly made to a Guardian reporter in an interview at the seventh annual Energy Caribbean Conference at the Hilton Trinidad and Conference Centre. I categorically deny making any such statement during the course of any media engagement in which I participated.
