Former PM Testifies Before Commission Of Inquiry In 1990 Failed Coup

(Antigua Observer) PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad –Former prime minister Basdeo Panday said he had no prior knowledge of a coup by members of the radical Jamaat-al Muslimeen group in 1990 and said the phrase “wake me up when it is over” was meant to be a joke with his wife, Oma.
