Culture Minister Dr Nyan Gadsby-Dolly and Pan Trinbago president Keith Diaz at the Queen’s Park Savannah in January.

MEMBERS of Pan Trinbago’s central executive have written to the Ministry of Community Development, Culture and the Arts calling for the revocation of Keith Diaz, Pan Trinbgao’s president, as its appointee to the National Carnival Commission’s (NCC) board.

Diaz and Dr Nyan Gadsby-Dolly, Minister of Community Development, Culture and the Arts, confirmed yesterday to Newsday that they had received a letter.

This is the latest development in the ongoing dispute between Diaz, pan’s central executive and its membership.

Last Friday, police were called to Pan Trinbago’s Park Street, Port of Spain head office after some members rushed into a meeting of executive members and demanded that they leave.

Diaz said yesterday he was now seeking legal advice.

Speaking to Newsday by phone, he said, “Right now I am by a legal luminary. The letter states, ‘Revocation of an appointment of nominee.’”
