Former Attorney General, Anil Nandlall, was earlier today questioned by agents of the Special Organised Crime Unit on the missing law books issue.
Nandlall was not arrested but was invited to SOCU headquarters to provide clarifications on some issues related to the law books and their removal from the Ministry of Legal Affairs during his time as Attorney General during the last administration.
During an earlier explanation to the press, Mr. Nandlall had stated that before he took office as Attorney General, he had subscribed to the Commonwealth Law Reports and as a condition of his acceptance of the post of Attorney General, the Government would have to stand the cost for the purchase of the books.
He said the President at the time, Donald Ramotar, had agreed to the arrangement.
Nandlall said during the transition of power following the last elections, he had explained the arrangement to the incoming Attorney General.
The Attorney General, Basil Williams, believes that since the money used to purchase the law books came from the government funds, the books should have been left behind when Nandlall left office.
