Attorney Lynette Seebaran-Suite said yesterday she welcomed the opportunity to continue her work on discrimination, mainly against women and young girls.

She was given this opportunity when President Anthony Thomas Aquinas Carmona ORTT, SC, swore her in as chairman of the Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC), yesterday. Seebaran-Suite has been an advocate for the rights of women and girls, and an avid supporter of the rule of law, due process and social justice.

“When I was invited by the President, I welcomed the opportunity to continue the work I have been doing for many years in fighting for discrimination acts on many levels and also in terms of the Equal Opportunities Commission which is to advocate for the Discrimination Act in Trinidad and Tobago to educate the public on the issues surrounding that which advocates for law reform, even with the Equal Opportunities Act. This has created some categories of discrimination on which I litigate, but there are some gaps at which I need to look,” Seebaran-Suite said, adding that age discrimination was not included in the legislation.

Seebaran-Suite said she was looking forward to coming up with a framework and plan, and working together with the other commissioners of the EOC.

“The work of that tribunal needs to be highlighted and those are some of my thoughts in taking up this remit

“I anticipate that when one wants to do a job well there will be the requisite effort to be put into it, and I am ready to embrace the challenge.
