Trinidad boots out ‘arrogant’ Indian minister
(03-26 11:48)

Trinidad & Tobago's leader has fired a government minister for harassing a flight attendant on the national airline.
Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar said Glen Ramadharsingh had been relieved of his appointment as minister of people and social development. He is an ethnic Indian.
After a Friday flight to Port-of-Spain, Caribbean Airlines attendant Ronelle Laidlow filed a complaint against the politician. She said he refused to stow his carry-on bag for several minutes. She added that after the flight landed, he brushed her left breast while trying to snatch her name tag. She quoted him as saying that her “days are numbered.''
On Monday, Ramadharsingh apologized for his behavior and said he was exhausted at the time.
But Persad-Bissessar says her administration will make “no allowance for arrogance.''--AP
