admin

PRIME MINISTER Dr Keith Rowley yesterday condemned the brutal murder of slain prison officer Fitzalbert Victor Jr. In a statement issued by the Office of the Prime Minister, Rowley declared, “The level of violent crime and criminal conduct is objectionable, and continues to attract the full attention of the Cabinet, National Security Council (NSC) and all other arms of the State whose duty it is to work assiduously to ensure that we return, in the shortest possible time, to good order, peace, safety and security in Trinidad and Tobago. “ The Prime Minister, who is a lso the NSC chairman, continued, “One cannot overstate the importance of the work done by the men and women of the Prisons Service, Police, Coast Guard, Regiment and other arms of the nation’s security system who put their lives on the line and stand in defense and promotion of law and order in our communities.” Rowley added, “If they don’t, the result will undoubtedly be anarchy.” Saying Government acknowledges that the level of criminal conduct in the country is acceptable, Rowley said, “ We also acknowledge that incarceration of persons on remand and convicted persons remain an integral part of the national security regimen.” He vowed, “As such, Government will continue to focus and redouble its efforts to protect, secure and ensure an environment that is not conducive to fear and terror aimed at those of our citizens whose job it is to provide all aspects of security to the population.” Speaking at an earlier news conference at Cabildo Chambers in Port-of-Spain, Attorney General Faris Al-Rawi said “all is not well” in the prison system. Al-Rawi disclosed that he and National Security Minister Edmund Dillon will “shine a light” on those ills in a public consultation on the prison system which will take place soon.
