Sunstone Equity’s John Van Dyke

ABSOLUTELY untrue and unfounded.

This is how Movement for Social Justice (MSJ) political leader David Abdulah yesterday described allegations by Opposition MP Dr Roodal Moonilal surrounding the Oilfields Workers’ Trade Union’s purchase of the Petrotrin oil refinery.

“He is trying to come up with things that are absolutely not true, and he is suggesting that some deal was taking place which involved Sunstone Equity, the union and A&V Oil and the refinery,” Abdulah said yesterday.

“What (Moonilal) is trying to do is add one and one, and get 50.”

During the budget debate in Parliament on Tuesday, Moonilal questioned whether A&V Oil’s Vidya Deokiesingh was responsible for setting up a meeting between Sunstone and the OWTU.
