Tim Gopiesingh admits this man is his son

EDUCATION Minister Dr Tim Gopeesingh yesterday admitted that a man who was recorded in a video, ‘planassing’ (beating with the flat side of a cutlass) another man who was purchasing doubles — which was later aired on social video-sharing website YouTube — was in fact his son.

“Yes, he is my son,” Dr Gopeesingh said yesterday as he was questioned about the video by reporters at St Mary’s College in Port-of-Spain where he went to distribute laptops to Form One students. [http://www.newsday.co.tt/news/0,166795.html]
