Police in Trinidad and Tobago say they have launched investigations into a number of election related incidents including a report of bullets being left in an envelope for a candidate of the minority opposition Independent Liberal Party (ILP).

According to a report by the Jamaica Observer, ILP chairman Rekha Ramjit told reporters that the bullets had been left for the party’s Fyzbad candidate Fabien Assie and was now appealing for security for all politicians contesting the September 7th, 2015 poll.

Police said they are also probing reports that the business place of a candidate for the People’s National Movement (PNM) had been robbed.

Acting Commissioner of Police Stephen Williams said while he has not received any request from any candidate for extra security at this time, he would not comment on whether political candidates should use private security and that both incidents are being investigated.
