Meanwhile Member of Parliament for Oropouche East Dr. Roodal Moonilal is today saying that the murders of three people at Debe on Thursday night are the direct result of the PNM Government’s rank incompetence in handling the ever-worsening crime scourge throughout Trinidad and Tobago.
He says that the killings come in the face of a recent increase in serious crimes in rural communities, including a concerted attack on businessmen.
He maintains that Thursday night’s murders – one of which took place in the yard of a Hindu temple – once more unmasks the Government’s gross inability to take guns off the street.
Dr. Moonilal says that recent moves to create safe zones at Laventille, Sea Lots and Beetham Estate have seen crime being exported to areas like Debe, Tunapuna, Chaguanas, St Joseph, Penal and other communities, which the Government has shown no resolve in protecting.
He also noted that as recently as Thursday the Minister of National Security gloated about a “crime-free” society even as more and more nationals are losing their lives to criminals.
