Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar has made a second call for a meeting with Trinidad and Tobago’s Prime Minister to discuss crime.
In a letter to Attorney General Faris al-Rawi yesterday, Persad-Bissessar stated that this country is faced with excessive violent crime and she urged the Government to not grandstand but work with the Opposition on a Parliament committee to examine the Anti-Gang Bill and the Anti-Terrorism Bill.
“This is not a time for public posturing and grandstanding, given the excessive nature of violent crime, which now confronts our country,” she said.
Meanwhile, a TAXI cab company owner is Tobago’s first murder victim for the year.
According to the Trinidad Express, businessman James Wise was found dead at around 6:00am today in the yard of his home at Crompston Trace, Crown Point. The body bore chop wounds.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
