In a brief statement, the company said that the allegations against Balgobin, who is also the President of the Trinidad and Tobago Manufacturers Association (TTMA) were contained in a whistle-blower complaint submitted to the board of directors on November 3, 2016.
Board of Directors decision
The statement indicated that following the internal investigation, the board of directors made a decision to dismiss the allegations on October 26.

The employee alleged the incidents took place on August 17 and again on September 14, 2016 after the two attended work-related meetings.
