Ramlogan's housekeeper's home raided by police

Police raided the home of Goomatee Ragbir, the maid of former attorney general Anand Ramlogan and arrested two suspects after seizing a small quantity of marijuana. 

Guardian Media was on the scene and captured the arrest of the suspects exclusively.

In an interview at her Sir Lamont Avenue, Phillipine home, Ragbir said she has been working with Ramlogan for the past 18 years.

“They ransacked everything, break down the door and they find a few grams of weed.

They said we have weapons.

This is not true. We don't deal with that but one of the boys does take a smoke, " Ragbir added.

 Saying the police told her she was going down too, Ragbir added that she was prevented from accompanying the officers on the raids.

"They say they looking for ammunition and let Anand help me now.

They told me that the million house he built was built with thief money but I told them everything he owns now was what he had when I started to work with him 18 years ago."

She added, “I don't know if this has anything to do with Anand investigations.

They know I work with Anand. They showed a warrant for illegal arms."

Councillor Marsha Jaimjngal said she was convinced it was politically motivated.

Jaimungal said she was cooking when she saw the police with guns and ammunition. “I believe this stemmed from the investigation into Anand. They blocked up the whole track leading to the house.

I think this is political victimisation to distract the population as to what is going on. The fake oil scandal was never investigated and persecuted. These raids are meant to distract, " Jaimungal added.

Police said a total of four people were arrested during raids in Phillipine and Palmyra.

The Guardian will bring you more as this story develops.
