Jwala Rambarran, an Indian-origin Central Bank Governor of Trinidad and Tobago, has been expelled for being "discourteous" to the government by making public details about foreign exchange and recession.
Jwala Rambarran, 47, was in controversy after he announced in December that the Trinidad and Tobago is officially in a recession and disclosed the names of companies that are the biggest foreign exchange buyers.
Mr. Rambarran was expelled on a recommendation from the Cabinet, Trinidad and Tobago’s Minister of Finance Colm Imbert informed. “Cabinet took the decision after very careful deliberations,” the minister was quoted as saying.
The former bank deputy governor Alvin Hilaire has been named as his replacement.
