Sturge stated that the Prime Minister led the populace to believe that both he and the People’s National Movement had the answers to issues related to crime and National Security.
Sturge added that in the last 72 hours Trinidad witnessed an unprecedented 15 murders and has thus called on the Minister of National Security to have better control of the issue.
On a related matter, on the heels of the passing of the Strategic Services Amendment Act 2016, Sturge claimed the Minister of Tourism had taken to mainstream media to complain about citizens posting the reality of violent events on Social media, Facebook in particular.
