Prime Minister, Kamla Persad-Bissessar, has announced that a police/army post would be set up at Duncan Street, Port-of-Spain, within the next 24 to 48 hours.
This in an effort to curb the recent spate of murders which have intensified in the capital city.
Speaking with residents at the compound of Building 64, where slain teen Niam Antoine had been evicted from his Housing Development Corporation apartment by gunmen, who had since been occupying it, the PM also give the assurance that the implementation of the death penalty would also be looked at during this new session of Parliament.
Mrs. Persad-Bissessar cried yesterday when Natasha Rogers, mother of Antoine, told her of her son’s life of pain.
Antoine and his 16-year-old cousin Rasheeda Gomez were shot dead on Wednesday.
