The latest is dealing with fallout from Jack Warner her former Minister in her government and now an Independent MP who has been charged in a sting operation by the Americans for his work as an executive of FIFA the governing board of football worldwide.  Mrs. Bissessar says she took no money from him but Mr. Warner revealed large cheques rewritten to advertisers to pay for the promotional material of the governing party.
