In April, a special branch officer found “a plant-like substance” in the gazebo of the men’s washroom of then Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar’s home at Philippines, Penal. The substance was later confirmed to be marijuana.

After five years, in 2019, the investigation was brought to a close.

Police Commissioner Gary Griffith told reporters during a media conference on June 5, 2019 that no charges will be brought against Persad-Bissessar or anyone for that matter.

He said the marijuana was found while Persad-Bissessar was out of the country and, at any point in time, there could have been up to 70 people that had full access to the yard including gardeners, drivers, soldiers, police officers, etc.
